Tops (1969) is as much a "toy" film as it is an "ideas" film. It shows mankind of all races and places playing with a single simple toy. The unity of humanity comes through in a way that is utterly pleasurable and abso...展开lutely unforgettable. The cast comprises 123 tops from countries all over the world. "Tops" epitomizes the Eames' ability to convey complex ideas - in this case, ideas about the physics of motion and the universal nature of tops. Included is a wonderful moment of comprehension when a simple tack, thrown onto a drawing board, spins and is suddenly seen as a top.
