Kiyoshi Kurosawa's a nerve-shredding thriller about the hunt for a serial killer in a bleak and decaying Tokyo.

Crime 1998 111 mins

Director: Kiyoshi Kurosawa

Overview

A series of murders have been committed by ordinary people who claim to have had no control over their horrifying actions. Following the only link – a mysterious stranger who had brief contact with each perpetrator and their victim – detective Kenichi Takabe (Koji Yakusho, Tokyo Sonata, 13 Assassins) places his own sanity on the line as he tries to end the wave of inexplicable terror.

Described as one of the greatest films of all time by Bong Joon Ho (The Host, Snowpiercer), Cure is a deeply unsettling masterpiece of its genre.
