Cure: A wave of gruesome murders is sweeping Tokyo. The only connection is a bloody X carved into the neck of each of the victims. In each case, the murderer is found near the victim and remembers nothing of the crime. Detective Takabe and psychologist Sakuma are called in to figure out the connection, but their investigation goes nowhere. An odd young man is arrested near the scene of the latest murder, who has a strange effect on everyone who comes into contact with him. Detective Takabe starts a series of interrogations to determine the man's connection with the killings.

A hypnotic masterpiece by this amazing auter called Kiyoshi Kurosawa...one of a kind film, the kind the Japanese know how to create this otherworldly atmosphere and it's so convincing at the same time though it's not real...excellent film...

You won't get a more mesmerizing plot than this....who are you?? that's the key question as hypnotically repeated through the movie to unleash our destructive instincts...difficult to follow but rewarding for originality and tension,8/10.

Someone here dared to say the acting sucks. Well, it doesn't! In fact, this is a wonderful film, contained and subtle as the Japanese themselves. It does have some gore elements in it, but not in sufficient quantities to label it horror. It is suspenseful, but may not be paced enough to please everyone. If, however, you like your thrillers cerebral, atmospheric and intriguing, with a highly original premise and plenty of layers to make you do some late night IMDb research - Cure is a MUST see for you! 8/10

If you like Japanese horror movies, then you'll like this one. Very creepy, and psychological. At the end you should have chills. 5/5 for me.

I thought this was brilliantly done. The acting was great. A psychological thriller/mystery should make you think. A movie like this was designed to make you think for yourself and that is why it leaves you with un-answered questions. What would be the point if everything was spelled out completely and handed to you on a platter? Most of the things that people complained about and criticized in the comments were very purposefully done and we're part of the style of the movie. These people just don't understand this type of movie. It goes right over their heads. It's called art and the artist has no obligation to justify, explain or compromise their vision for anyone. Especially if they are not that interested in commercial success. Art with integrity can never be concerned with making money or appealing to the lower common denominator that is the mass consumer. Those that this film was made for will understand that and value it. It is a thing of beauty and depth. It is psychological horror and while it is somewhat bloody, blood and gore do not ever equal horror. Because of its subtlety I have found that this film is always worthy of another viewing.

A good movie I just didn't get the ending at all. Confusing. But acting was good, storyline was interesting until the end.

The movie was interesting. Rather slow and the ending was a little vague to me but others may get it. Keep me watching but others may not share the same opinion.

actually it has an interesting storyline, but its too slow and dragging for me, and it didnt even show who/what the real culprit was.. not sure if i'd recommend this :/

Okay, while I like asian movies this one left me with questions. It moved slowly. Although it seemed to have a good storyline it lost it's intensity for being creepy. Definately more a psychological thriller. The ending left me with questions. Wouldn't watch it again and not sure I would recommend it either. 2/5

This was quite an interesting movie but left me with questions. Perhaps if I understood everything,I would have enjoyed it more.
