Paterson ★★★★


Second viewing, no change. Still love everything except the one big, heavily foreshadowed plot element. Three small moments/observations that stood out this time (As Seen On Twitter™):

1. Paterson puts his clothes out every night, presumably so that he doesn't wake Laura in the morning opening drawers. Nothing is ever made of this; escaped me completely the first time. But it says so much about him.

2. Love the loud, mysterious clacking sound in the bar, which turns out to be a '90s-style jukebox with CDs in giant platters (with artwork attached) that you flip to browse.

3. OMFG the look of proud anticipation on the little girl's face just before she reads Paterson the final line of her poem ("Most people call it rain"). The essence of creativity in a single facial expression.
