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

After his notebook was shredded to pieces, it felt like the only thing left from that whole week was the same old bus driving, which meant nothing. That particular bit was very sad. I didn't think his poems were any good -most of them anyway- but when he lost them, everything seemed even more meanin More
