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.

Trivia

The movie is almost entirely shot in one, seemingly uncut, camera take. However, around the 72 minute mark there is a cut to inside a helicopter, a cut to below the helicopter and then a cut back to the main characters. See more »

Goofs

For the artwork, when the American flag is hung vertically, the "blue" field with stars should be in the upper left hand corner. In this case, it is reversed. See more »

Best use of steadycam I have ever seen.
28 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

If "Bushwick" had been shot in a traditional way, I would have given it 6 stars. The story - a survival tale - has been done many times before, and is nothing to write home about.

The use of steady cam is, however. 'Bushwick' is one long continuous shot, where you don't notice the cuts (much like 'Birdman'). You are taken right into the action. There's no shakycam, no quick editing, just a camera constantly hovering beside, in front of and in the back of the action. How refreshing.

I wish that more movies were shot like this.
