Directed by Kiyoshi Kurosawa

Japan 1997 111 mins. In Japanese with subtitles

Kurosawa’s first feature released in the United States, Cure follows detective Kenichi Takabe as he investigates a series of bizarre murders that each share a distinctive and striking calling card, but which are being committed by different people who seem unable to remember their actions after the murder has been committed. The closer Takabe gets to the hypnotist suspect, the quicker the deterioration of Takabe’s (and the viewer’s) sense of stability and stoicism.
