[Jim] Jarmusch celebrates the ordinary because let's face it, most artists are struggling working class members of society who have to "fit" their passions into everyday life.

Seeing the everyday through the perspective of a creative mind helps transform a low key character study into something more akin to magical realism; the end result is nothing short of utterly joyous.

It's almost a thesis on the pleasures of simplicity, quietude, detachment and a form of solipsism.

I think Jarmusch really nailed the life of a creator who can observe the minutiae around them and transmute it into gemlike verse, and yet still remain curtained off from public attention.

The filmmaker's choices and the film's subject's choices are so carefully weighted and so perfectly chosen that the universe of "Paterson" is one of deep and lasting meaning, and the character of Paterson is unforgettable as portrayed by Adam Driver.

While nothing really happens, such is the strength of the performances, and the sweet, lowdown vibe Jarmusch creates, Paterson makes for delightful company.

These seemingly small moments contain a certain magic all their own, internal rhymes and themes that begin to dismantle the idea of normalcy.

The movie is a visual and narrative masterpiece. The landscape conveys the character of the town, its history, and the inner life of its inhabitants.
January 30, 2018
Both Driver and Farahani draw us into this world of small stakes writ large, theirs a moving portrait of a living marriage, quirks and all.

Jarmusch's movie is a beautiful cinematic meditation on the essence of the mundane and the complexity of the everyday.

The film is a celebration of "everyday poetry," and those who take the time to find it.
November 16, 2017
Jarmusch's pared approach seems to emphasize so little... Yet this little unnoticeably aggregates over the week, over time, growing in quiet humor, gathering the terms to imbue the regular and the unassuming with unexpected, gently piqued emotion.
