Jellyfish Eyes (The Criterion Collection) [Blu-ray]
Manufacturer: Criterion Collection (Direct) Brand: CRITERION COLLECTIONS
Takashi Murakami, one of the most popular artists in the world, made his directorial debut with Jellyfish Eyes, taking his boundless imagination to the screen in a tale that is about friendship and loyalty at the same time as it addresses humanityâ€™s penchant for destruction. After moving to a country town with his mother following his fatherâ€™s death, a young boy befriends a charming, flying, jellyfish-like spriteâ€”only to discover that his schoolmates have similar friends, and that neither they nor the town itself are what they seem to be. Pointedly set in a post-Fukushima world, Murakamiâ€™s modest-budgeted special effects extravaganza boasts unforgettable creature designs and carries a message of cooperation and hope for all ages.
