Paterson – 2016 Jarmusch

1.0 -- March 2017 Both a fully Jarmusch minimalist film and detailed character study (military background of driver’s paterson character) Easily Adam Driver’s best role/film/performance to date and a very charming performance from Golshifteh Farahani The bus driver listening in on conversations definitely reminds me of jarmusch’s 1991 night on earth but of course this is on a bus and not taxi cabs I could be way too far in the auteur/authorship weeds here but the place Driver (Paterson) likes most is the beautiful shot of trains which reminds me of jarmusch’s 1989 mystery train-- trains are a focal point
