    Ultraviolence (2020)

    Injustice is a really good film. There are tales of doors being barricaded at showings to stop the cops getting in and stopping it.

    That can alienating too I think? Condemned to belt out your one hit, night after night, to dwindling audiences so you can pay the bills.
