Detective Takabe and psychologist Sakuma must solve a series of grisly murders, linked only by a red X mark on the victims' necks. Things get even more complicated when there seem to be multiple killers --- all with no memory of their crimes.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

70

New Times (L.A.) by Andy Klein

The movie is not always satisfying as a standard thriller, nor is it always clear; but it's never dull, either, and it displays a sensibility so weird as to be its own recommendation.
70

The New York Times by Dana Stevens

The final scene is a piece of cunning visual wit that makes you realize how artful and sneaky Cure, has been beneath its clinical, deadpan surface.
75

Chicago Tribune by John Petrakis

What is most impressive about Kurosawa's direction is how he uses the entire frame, complete with expository background action, to fill in the story blanks. His eagerness to suggest, rather than declare, marks him as a director with confidence to spare.
80

Los Angeles Times by Kenneth Turan

With its gift for infusing uneasiness into every frame, Kurosawa's moody, unnerving film continues to spook us even after the lights have gone on.
