While other New York disaster movies like The Day After Tomorrow and Escape From New York try to play up the disaster element as much as possible, a new film called simply Bushwick (yes, we have Lena Dunham to thank for this kind of overexposure) plans simply to shoot the action as it happens being that Bushwick already naturally looks like a war-torn area.
The film’s screenwriter, Gilbert Illiterate, a 35-year-old who has written a handful of episodes of 2 Broke Girls, told The Burning Bush, “I didn’t go out of my way to emphasize the calamity of the story–the setting of Bushwick takes care of all that on its own.” Director Martin Scorehazy added, “I’m just doing this to pay the rent on my apartment in Echo Park, and I thought this movie would require the least amount of effort.”
While the star of the film is reputed cunt/Bushwick fauxcialite Yamanda Decadent, most Bushwickians will probably still attend a VIP screening of the finished product at Silent Barn, where catastrophe-themed cocktails like the McKibbin Dumpster, the Dekalb Stop at Night and the Walk of Shame Down Knickerbocker will make the taste of the film go down a lot easier. The movie is expected to have a whopping thirty-nine minute run time.
