Given its title and subject matter, director Barry Levinson's Toys must be mentioned for this list - as much for its approach to the idea of childlike play as the cinematic riddle it wound up being. The story is simple enough: Leslie Zevo (Robin Williams) is too immature to take over control of his father's toy company, and must wage war against the military toys created by his three-star general uncle.
But the overall detachment from reality makes the film more of an abstract painting of a film, sure to confuse almost every viewer at one point or another. Thankfully, the film's third act includes an all-out war between traditional toys and military-grade toy tanks and helicopters - not to mention the enormous (and deadly) 'toys' sprinkled throughout. Toy fans may not love it, but it's one they simply must see to believe.
