Movie • 1997 • Crime  

Report
A wave of gruesome murders is sweeping Tokyo. The only connection is a bloody X carved into the neck of each of the victims. In each case, the murderer is found near the victim and remembers nothing of the crime. Detective Takabe and psychologist Sakuma are called in to figure out the connection, but their investigation goes nowhere...
This movie contains 25 potentially triggering events.

A lot of animals are shown in very small cages in awful circumstances, including a monkey, different birds, bunnies, and possibly cats or small dogs.

One of the first murders is of a sex worker, and no sexual situation is shown, but it is just after, and you do see her bare breasts.

It’s not directly stated, but it’s clear that the wife has some sort of degenerative disease. Plus, the killer seems to feign being a complete amnesiac with an incredibly short-term memory.
