A FILM BY: Bigas Luna
WRITTEN BY: Bigas Luna (screenplay), Michael Berlin (dialogue)
STARRING: Zelda Rubinstein, Michael Lerner, Talia Paul

ANGUISH is psychosis incarnate, a guided tour of a surreal, unyielding cinematic nightmare led by Zelda Rubinstein and her hypnotic rasp. As emotionally violent as physical, both wildly excessive then and still shocking and nauseating now, ANGUISH revels, if not outright wallows, in transcending the screen and scarring hardened horror devotees. Perhaps the greatest, most damning film about film ever made, and with one of the few truly great twists, we definitely won’t be sitting in the front row for this one; it might only be a movie, but get too close to Bigas Luna’s masterwork in unrestricted psychological torment and you might find your reality suddenly, irreversibly bent.

Presented by The Front Row
