What makes this New York subway pic so disturbing?

It's a question. I really don't know…but I do think this pic is scary. 


Is it because we can't tell if this is a man or a woman? Is it because we can't tell if he/she is just surprised, or really angry? Is it the surreal aspect — the fur coat versus the scuzzy subway, against the sunset backdrop?

To me this looks like a shot from a video game. Just before all hell breaks loose. 

From a slideshow of subway pics from l970's New York. It was different back then, I can attest.
