Toys

The 1992 film, 'Toys' by Barry Levinson is an unappreciated gem of a film.

I noticed it was available on Hulu and watched it for the first time since VHS was king. I didn't appreciate the art direction; it is beautiful. The movie is very surreal and looks amazing. It has many stars of today (Robin Wright-Penn, Joan Cusack, Robin Williams, and MICHAEL GAMBON! Dumbledore is in this movie!

It has a great score and a fantastically also-surreal soundtrack. If you watched this back in the day and dismissed it as ridiculous...give it another try.

You may still find it ridiculous, but you just may find an amazing experience.
