An intimate look at a humble man's week, like riding a bus through a small town and seeing everything. A beautiful, touching film with no pretensions and so much heart.

A lovely, poetic film. About the fragility of art, and love. "It's okay. They're just words" That made me almost sadder than what happened in the first place. I did really like the scene with the Japanese poet, in some way, although I don't like when Paterson is being untruthful or hides away. "Poetry in translation is like taking a shower with [a] raincoat." Beautiful.

A really charming and subtle little drama. While it may appear to be simple there is a complexity that is available if you are willing to dig a little deeper. If that's not you then steer clear of this film. I really enjoyed it. https://IHateBadMovies.com

"Some call it rain"

"Paterson" is one of the most relatable, sweet, and charming movies I've seen this year. While the story is simply and straight forward on paper, but the final result is quite unique. Before seeing the movie, I've heard nothing but great things about th More

Talking about the role of cinema is such a monumental task that it's almost pointless—cinema means something different to everyone at different times and in different places. To me, one of the vital roles of cinema is to celebrate the mundane, the everyday, and to transform it into something v More

I will go out a limb here (and try not to cut the branch out from under myself) and say that I feel this is nearly a perfect movie. Oh, I don’t mean that it is one of the best of all time, or even that it makes my own top ten list. But rarely does a film live up so well to what it strives to accom More
