    Subject: The question of Identity in "Cure"
    Date: Sep 23, 2005
    Sender: DanutaPrevious | Next

    Every cop is a criminal...(Mick Jagger) In the end, the cop kills his wife (mesemerized by the sign X of the dying drifter)thus curing himself of his sickness (he is sick because he knows that the only real solution to his "wife problem" is to kill her or have her killed. He is, in the final cafe scene, very relaxed, if not indifferent, when he received the news of his wife death - presumably that is what the phone call was about - and asks only to send the car to fetch him.
    Very rich and complex cult film with the double theme prevailing both characters with one a psychological mirror image of the other. Great film!!!
