Pioneering indie cinema director, Jim Jarmusch focusses on people on the margins of society, drawing on the mundane, Day-to-day actions of a person that make them who they are. In Paterson he looks at the life of a young bus driver with the same name as the sleepy American town he lives in. A fan of the modernist poet William Carlos Williams who wrote a book of poems dedicated to the town, every day Paterson writes his own poetry in quiet moments before he starts driving or after work. Compared to his exuberant Iranian girlfriend who covers her life in black and white patterns, he is quiet and unassuming but no less creative. Using deliberate framing and beautiful cinematography to exaggerate the importance of small moments in his character’s lives the film is a thoughtful exploration of the patterns and rhythms of American life that we don’t often see.
