  • Cure



    Tapping into prescient anxieties about the internet and mass communication (where a single interaction with a stranger can subvert your whole reality and fundamentally alter the shape of society for the worse), Kiyoshi Kurasawa’s Cure is an immaculately melancholy detective procedural that successfully functions as the most gripping and conventionally satisfying thriller I’ve seen in years, even as its plot slowly winds itself into an inescapably bleak existential ouroboros.

Self-described by writer/director/star Louise Linton (some actress from the Cabin Fever remake and wife of the former US Secretary of the Treasury) as “gender-swapped American Psycho” the film follows a successful #GirlBoss hedge fund manager who’s super into murder and cannibalism as she goes to the gym, stalks potential victims, abuses her…
