Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, he writes poetry into a notebook; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura's world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily. The film quietly observes the triumphs and defeats of daily life, along with the poetry evident in its smallest details.
Beautiful Execution of Dichotomy. Their rhythms. Tonality. Black and White. What their concerns about the world were. The melodic pace was haunting and beautiful. They were both intriguing creatures that molded an ecosystem from distinct elements that met in a middle passage. Adam Driver is hypnotic and special. Production and cinematography was rich, subtle, graceful. Absolutely loved it.
Gentle and brutal. I've been avoiding this like a strange foreign dish. It smelled delicious but the ingredients looked so strange together. Amazon, Jarmusch, Driver, Farahani et al served up a fulfilling surprise with Paterson. Will order again.
Very thought provoking, what a zen like movie. It's a has a calm but not fall asleep inducing quality. Adam driver plays a bus driver that writes poetry, and you go through about a week of his process. 4 stars because of the one time view aspect of the film.
I did like this film. It's the slow-paced routine life in the day of a young bus-driver. He writes poetry & remains in his routine world much as the every person who is watching this might or would be doing. His wife is beautiful, sweet & adoring of him & changes with her dreams while he is seemingly happy with the way he is. If you don't mind slow-paced that ends up like it began...kinda, then you'll like this one.
I tried, I really tried. This was too slow and I could not see any plot to the movie. Also, the poems were painful to listen to and the female role was ridiculous. I wanted to badly to get into the whole story but there really wasn't much of one so I am giving it 3 stars.
