Drama written and directed by Jim Jarmusch. The film follows Paterson (Adam Driver), a New Jersey bus driver with a hidden talent for writing poetry. Following the same routine each day, Paterson uses his observations while driving as inspiration for his writing. With his quirky and ambitious wife Laura (Golshifteh Farahani) pushing him to publish his work, Paterson is reluctant to make any change to his comfortable and serene world. The cast also includes Barry Shabaka Henley and Chasten Harmon.

Art house? maybe.
I can see how some will find it boring, and slow, and just will not get it.
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.

A couple that it is hard to believe that exists. They barely talk. Nothing happens and for a film that is meant to be about poetry, there's not much about the writing process. Read morePublished 6 days ago by A. D.
Interesting premise that promised much but ultimately failed to fully deliver on that promise. Liked the pace and how it looked but I wanted more from it.Published 8 days ago by phildog
Boring, slow, pointless film. Lead character seems like a depressed, passive android. Nothing happens, poems are trivial.Published 12 days ago by MA Kinsella
