his contemporary visual art, Murakami's colorful film juxtaposes
cute-and-cuddly with the grotesque. Blending CGI and live-action,
"Jellyfish Eyes" follows a young boy who moves to a small city in the
Japanese countryside. But Masashi soon discovers that inside the
apartment he shares with his mother lives a tiny monster, and that
beneath this strange city is a sordid bedrock of conspiracies, cults and
evil experiments. Allegedly, this ambitious film was ten years in the making.
