Stylish but limited - Cure review by TE

Spoiler Alert
21/02/2020

What makes ordinary "good citizens" commit murder?

The answer here is provided by a mysterious drifter who claims to have amnesia and to be empty inside. His subtle hypnotic techniques are linked to his studies of Franz Mesmer.

A potentially interesting exploration of this link is promised, but it all ends in predictable fashion with no insights offered into the Mesmer connection.
