Paterson

Paterson ★★★½

Jim Jarmusch's Paterson starring Adam Driver as a bus driver who writes poetry in his free time is surprisingly interesting.  The poetry is a big part of the film, but what makes it interesting is subtle and quiet ways it explores the wins and losses of daily life.  The way it shows that even the most mundane of daily routines are made unique by things like chance encounters, conversations overheard, and the actions of other people.  It's one of those films that if you let it will lull you into a trance and surprise you with how much you enjoyed it.

The Ron Says: See it.
