This is Criterion's entry into contemporary Asian cinema. Hell yeah.

It's already out on iTunes and I have no idea about its potential theatrical release. Full movie in a bad transfer on YouTube

there was either never a theatrical release date or it flew under my radar. so this movie in The Grapevine has a Criterion release date of 8 Dec 2015.

it's not even an impressive package so they must love the fuck out of this movie.

pretty standard home media stats. here's their synopsis:

Quote
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 humanity’s penchant for destruction. After moving to a country town with his mother following his father’s death, a young boy befriends a charming, flying, jellyfish-like sprite—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, Murakami’s modest-budgeted special effects extravaganza boasts unforgettable creature designs and carries a message of cooperation and hope for all ages.
