When the film ends, we suddenly see the credits scrolling up on a completely different movie screen, together with another completely different cinema audience of onlookers observing it before getting up and leaving one by one until the final onlookers stand up and walks to the left with the screen going black as he/she does so (implying that the real storyline was also yet another film within film).

I have just watched "Angustia" for the fourth or fifth time, now on DVD, and I do not get tired of this original, bizarre and surrealistic cult-movie, very underrated in IMDb. I am a fan of Bigas Lune, and in my opinion "Angustia" is his masterpiece. The story is simple, but tense, with a soundtrack that recalls Dario Argento's movies. Michael Lerner, in the role of the mad ophthalmologist; Talia Paul, in the role of a scared viewer that becomes impressed with the film she is watching on the screen; and Ángel Jovè, in the role of a lunatic killer, are perfect. Zelda Rubinstein, with her weird tune of voice, completes the lead cast of this gem with a great performance. My vote is nine.
Title (Brazil): "Os Olhos da Cidade São Meus" ("The Eyes of the City Are Mine")
