An international breakout hit that firmly established director Kiyoshi Kurosawa as a master of fear, Cure follows detective Takabe (the great Koji Yakusho) as he investigates a series of gruesome Tokyo murders in which a large X is found carved into the base of each victim's throat. When Takabe confronts the only link to every crime scene, a mysterious drifter who possibly possesses hypnotic powers, he is pulled into an unsettling mind game that risks his own sanity. Utilizing an ingenious visual style that evokes horror in every frame, Kurosawa's deeply unnerving twist on the police procedural suggests modern society's unknowing capacity for unspeakable evil.
18+ This film is unrated, but is not recommended for persons younger than 18 years of age due to violent imagery.
