It's unsatisfying as a story precisely because it aspires to create a mounting sense of dread by enlarging questions rather than answering them.

Tone and atmosphere mirror subject to perfection in Kiyoshi Kurosawa's hypnotic trip into the lower depths of the human mind.

It's well enough acted and directed to advance Kurosawa's claim to be taken as an important new voice in Japanese cinema.

Tough to shake even when it feels more like an exercise than a movie.

A fascinating artifact as well as a most engrossing thriller.

Cure has a cumulative power of horror which even seasoned filmgoers will not be able to resist.

It's more psychological than a genre movie, and that is the source of both its greatest interest and its biggest problem.

Once again [Kurosawa] takes on a familiar genre, the murder mystery, but he imbues it with so much angst and psychological juice that it takes on a life of its own.

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.

Rather than resort to clever plot twists and reversals, Kurosawa constructs an elaborate psychological maze and then strands us in the middle of it.

Cure sticks with you -- it's a movie about the power of suggestion that casts a troubling spell on the viewer as well.
