"An intimate portrait of a relationship"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

A beautifully drawn portrait of a relationship by Jim Jarmush. The pace is slow like a casual stroll on a sunny day but the performances are pitch perfect. Driver's quiet, intense poet is nicely balanced by Farahani's nuanced performance. Jarmush recreates small town America right down to the cracks in the sidewalk, but it's not claustrophobic, and the actors have a lot of room to breath. In a time when movies are CGI roller coasters, this is old school story telling, very satisfying.

"Great work from Adam Driver in a different role"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Proof positive that there is much, much more to Adam Driver than Kylo Ren. Paterson is a gentle, fittingly poetic film that is the perfect counter programme to FX heavy blockbusters. Driver plays the title character who lives in a town that also shares his name. He drives a bus, observes life around him and writes poetry about it. His wife has ambitions from cupcake businesses to Country Music stardom and if Paterson is tired of them (or her) he certainly doesn't show it. Seemingly nothing happens but in fact a lot does. Love this film.

Description

Paterson

Paterson (Adam Driver, STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, GIRLS, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS) is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey — they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer; he goes home to his wife, Laura (Golshifteh Farahani, MY SWEET PEPPERLAND, ABOUT ELLY). By contrast, Laura’s world is ever changing. New dreams come to her almost daily, each a different and inspired project. Paterson loves Laura and she loves him. He supports her newfound ambitions; she champions his gift for poetry.

In this film by acclaimed director Jim Jarmusch, the quiet triumphs and defeats of daily life are observed, along with the poetry that's evident in its smallest details.

Paterson Reviews

Paterson is a quietly majestic paean to the life of the mind; to the perishability of everything.”
 – Film Inquiry

“As a portrait of a relationship of would-be famous artists-he who follows a strict routine and she who changes her artistic pursuit on a whim-Jarmusch does not take a stance that one is better, just that simply doing is the best.”
 – Collider

“… a wry meditation on the nature of creativity … Adam Driver is wonderful as the would-be poet searching for inspiration in all the wrong places … Jarmusch's swe­etest, most accessible film”
 – CinemaDope
