BUSHWICK tells the story of twenty-year- old Lucy (Snow) and war veteran Stupe (Bautista). Texas, and other states (mostly Southern) are 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 and the invading forces, in order to get home and be reunited with Lucy's grandmother.
A Horrible, politically motivated liberal sickness induced view of America.
A liberal's wet dream of reverse provocation. Conservative states having won a Presidential election have now chosen to wage war on New York. I speculate that the premise here is based loosely on the election results of 2016, where the vote was polarized between New York, California and all the states in between. In the movie anyway -and you need to be smoking some really strong stuff or be a die- hard anarchist- Texas leads a revolution whereby Texas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, -and implied "heartland" states revolt against a Federal Government controlled by "New York" and implied California. The "Union" is now controlled by New York (implied) and all the rest of the "conservative" states are to be feared in this because they have chosen to invade New York to overthrow its power. Has the constitution failed? This is never explained. Yet, somehow, Middle America, led by Texas is out to take over New York. Somehow the world has become some draconian order to invade and murder civilians in New York with impunity and vile disrespect for human life. Im thinking now of the phrase "a thief thinks everyone steals"... The author somehow fears the Reality of America where a majority of states overrule a minority of two. There is no movie or story here. Just two people on a journey through endless mayhem, open anarchy and mindless violence in the street. Meanwhile we hear reports that "the states" have declared war on New York. Its complete political garbage.
