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.

Like a shoe on the other foot
1 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

I'm giving this movie an extra star to help balance out its rating from those who don't recognize its value, but in all sincerity it's just a 7 from me.. I thought the music and sound and overall immersion of camera work and the like where all rather perfect, I wasn't too fussed like some other reviewers at actors not being Tom Cruisy enough or whatever because I liked that they were flawed, its real that they were injured and that they portrayed a complex range of emotions where suited and they where ultimately some of the believable actors I've actually ever seen in an action movie all the way down to the lead man's out of shape panting that never stops.

Insurgency is a messy theme for any military 'just following orders', messy because people want to defend their home which can turn entire urban areas into warzones as demonstrated in this film.. so here we have what seems something many regressive thinkers can't wrap their head around when it comes to Arabs and Muslims who've been painted as the boogy men who attacked your world trade center buildings and so how dare they defend their home!! This mentality is like a brick wall cloaking a lot of anguish and pain which is only fair of course. 'Bushwick' eloquently puts the shoe on the other foot where your home has been invaded by the same 'just following orders' jarheadism as that of what we unleashed on Arab countries post 9/11 in which probably thousands of innocent 'collateral' occurred (without knowing the correct figures).. in pursuit of oil, cloaked as a conquest to rid the globe of weapons of mass destruction, to restore order and bring Osama to justice and believed by the greater majority of US. I felt this movie successfully illustrated the faults of our governments (namely the US) and also illustrated how important it is for us ordinary people to get a clue or two about the weapons we wish to keep around for safety for when marshal law is executed, we might live to see another day without shooting each other first.
