Description: Oddball Japanese director Kiyoshi Kurosawa directed this haunting police thriller about murder, mind control, and the power of charisma. Police Detective Takabe (Koji Yakusho) is tracking a series of bizarre murders, all committed in exactly the same manner: a giant X is slashed in the flesh of the victims. But that's where the similarities end. In each case, seemingly well-adjusted people suddenly kill without understanding why.

"20.6, PC Alkaa varsin tavanomaisena sarjamurhaajajännärinä, ja onkin hieno huomata miten tähän uppoutuu pikkuhiljaa syvemmälle ja syvemmälle.
