Storyline

BUSHWICK tells the story of twenty-year- old Lucy (Snow) and war veteran Stupe (Bautista). Texas is trying to secede from the U.S., and NYC is being used as a negotiation tool. Lucy meets Stupe after coming up from the subway into the military invasion of Brooklyn. Together they decide to cross the treacherous five blocks of Bushwick - littered with looters, local militias, the invading forces, and one crazy cousin - in order to get home and be reunited with Lucy's grandmother.

Epic low budget POV in real time, don't miss it
28 August 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I think anyone going into this movie might imagine it to be a slick hipster goof on Red October but within its first few minutes it is setting the viewer up for a non stop ride.

The (almost) single cam POV and a story set in real time draws on masters such as Hitchcock (Rope) and Antonio (the Passenger) for tracking and steady cam shots that take a low budget movie to a heightened level. Tight framing creates a dramatic intensity without the need of CGI (or very little) for it's effects enabling a very dramatic story to unfold in a very familiar NY setting.

The subject/cause of the events is kept shrouded but as some "volk" have noted it fits into a political narrative that is familiar to us all in the USA.

The acting and the care and time the director gives for character development was unexpected but a great touch. Dave Bautista, straight out GotG2 and Brittany Snow are excellent in their roles.

So there you have it, no spoilers and make sure you see it if just to p o the "lone star" reviewers, ye haw.
