a psychiatrist who realizes he has been "touched" by Mamiya chooses to handcuff himself to a pipe, finally turning his homicidal impulses on himself rather than kill someone else.
So the film unfolds in two halves, the first of which plays in a more or less straightforward, procedural way, as we see Takabe and his psychologist partner Sakuma (Tsuyoshi Ujiki) play a cat-and-mouse game to find whoever's causing the murders.
Another film where I've gone in knowing next to nothing about it other than it is considerably acclaimed and something of a cult film, it's very easy to apply one's own frames of reference to Cure in order to make sufficient sense of it.
