Format: DVD
Every now and then you see a film that restores your faith in the modern world; Paterson is such a film. Named both after a person and a place in New Jersey, the film shows Paterson's life as a bus driver, going from one Monday to the next. But more than driving, what defines his life is his writing of poetry, which he does on the bus before his shift starts, or during breaks. He lives with his girlfriend Laura, who is hoping to launch herself as a maker of cupcakes with black and white icing. The beauty of the film is all in the details - there are no big events, but there are a host of small vignettes played out in the local bar, at the bus depot, at home with the dog, in the street; thanks to Jim Jarmusch's poetic eye, everything is touched by magic - getting up at 6.10 every morning, when it is already light in October, still, moments of tenderness, eating breakfast in a particular bowl, and us noticing the crunchy shapes in the bowl correspond to the curtains which Laura has decorated with black rings ... She also gets a 'Harlequin' guitar to reinvent herself as a country singer. These plans probably won't come to anything; but what does happen is the laid-back 'living, loving and giving', courtesy of one very special actor called Adam Driver, who has the charm, the poetry in his gestures, the shyness, slight melancholy, the attentiveness, when called for, the courage ... You come out of this film feeling people are better than they seemed before, that you had become blinkered ... Poems are written across the screen, and in Paterson's notebook, images of water and buildings are superimposed, and Paterson's distinctive, wholly lovable features are seen from every angle, like a whole album of sensitive but unpretentious polaroids ... There are not so many spoken words, none of them shouted, but what a torrent of life and screen magic this film releases in one giant burst.

This film is incredible. Unravelling at a slow pace, it distils its message via the careful collection of ordinary situations, following closely the main character's life. Adam Driver is absolutely astounding, with his impressive reserve when expressing the character's emotions. Being utterly beautiful visually, the message of this film is so strong, but not at all forced on the viewers. Not everyone will see something there, maybe lacking the patience to go through the motions at the pace of reality, day after day. This film is about what it is to be an artist.

Having just seen this on the big screen - unfortunately only showing at a select few venues - will be investing in this dvd to experience again what was an immensely pleasing, gentle and uplifting film. The previous review really does a great job in setting out the merits of this perfectly realised film. The 2 lead characters are beautifully played (probably should include the dog as it has a big influence on the storyline) and all the supporting cast, in little cameos, keep the interest high. There is no sex, violence, inherent nastiness or vitriol present throughout and no slam bang action scenes so this would certainly not appeal to everyone. It is a gentle depiction of the everyday life of one man and his day to day experiences which sounds less than exciting but I was engrossed from start to finish helped by the simple storyline, complementary cinematography and great acting throughout (the characters all held the interest). It struck me that there were plenty of points throughout the film where it could branch out into areas of discord /animosity /disagreement but pleased to say it didn't and the underlying warmth was retained at all times. I left the cinema on the day with a warm glow - just a lovely little film which I would recommend to anyone wanting a heartwarming experience. Anyone who enjoyed the Bruce Dern film Nebraska would probably enjoy this.

Interesting script. It's real, simple and fluent. The simplicity of people's conversations, of their faces, looks and dreams creates an almost perfect train of life pictures that largely matches the protagonist's writing style. Yet, that almost tricked the audience. In this mere simplicity of daily routine, no detail is left to chance.

Its a good movie. I liked it.You have to watch it and listen.Its not for the popcorn action pic fan .
Art house? maybe.
I can see how some will find it boring, and slow, and just will not get it.

A meditative account of how to live an ordinary life well. ( The meaning of life is how you live it...) Like all good films, novels, art works etc. it leaves plenty of spaces for thinking. I bought this DVD for my husband for his birthday. We spent a lovely and rewarding afternoon watching it. I agree with another reviewer that the poems written by/ for Paterson are not particularly good, but in the context of the film and his life, they are still lovely.

A bus driver (Adam Driver) contentedly goes to work and composes poems for his own pleasure while his stay-at-home wife (Golshifteh Farahani) occupies her time with artistic pursuits of her own.

I’ve seen a fair chunk of the Jim Jarmusch back catalogue so I had a good idea what to expect (little plot, minimal dialogue, deadpan humour and a very relaxed pace). Even I was taken aback by how slight this was. There’s no plot beyond seeing him go to work over a week. There’s really no joined up narrative. No dramatic story takes place. He basically just goes to work, composes new poems in his book and then goes home and then to a bar. It’s just small episodes of little moments. I can’t honestly say the individual episodes were particularly interesting or insightful. Nor do they add up to more than the sum of their tiny little parts. At nearly two hours it feels indulgent. I didn’t find the film to be amusing. There were a few very small chuckles here and there but for the most part the deadpan humour didn’t work for me.

It was an okay film. The quiet smallness isn’t without some appeal and its inconsequential nature is clearly deliberate. I wasn’t bored by its lack of story or annoyed by the slack pace. I just can’t say it was more than mildly watchable. It didn’t add up to much. If the individual scenes were more fun or interesting then this would have been a much stronger film. As it is, it’s merely watchable. It’s a minor film of very minor pleasures. Perhaps it’s a grower; and unlike Jarmusch’s more depressing, rougher early period movies, this will probably attract me back to re-watch it again in the future. Without the glossy production values this would have been much harder to watch.
