Join The PCP this episode as we examine the movie Toys starring Robin Williams and directed by Barry Levinson. This was never Williams’ best or most revered movie, in fact some consider it his worst. We say not, but even Robin’s worst is still pure magic. Listen in as we navigate the director’s decision to base it in a fantastically whimsical world, filled to the brim with eccentric and gorgeous production design only to lose real structure, hoping the funny, hyper man-child would negate the issues the film has. It often works when Williams is on-screen, though it’s not often enough. The soundtrack is DOPE though! Shout out to Hans (Bubbie) Zimmer!
