Paterson is a bus driver in the city of Paterson, New Jersey - they share the name. Every day, Paterson adheres to a simple routine: he drives his daily route, observing the city as it drifts across his windshield and overhearing fragments of conversation swirling around him; he writes poetry into a notebook; he walks his dog; he stops in a bar and drinks exactly one beer. He goes home to his wife, Laura. By contrast, Laura's world is ever changing.

This offbeat project is actually very engaging, bringing droll humor and sweet-hearted feeling to its low-key affirmation of ordinary life.

As Paterson makes these rounds again and again in his bus, Jarmusch unhurriedly crafts a cinematic ode to finding both art and delight in the quotidian.
To the people who think there is little to no " plot " I guess they are not familiar with " art " movies.

This is not one of Jarmusch's better films. If you need to put yourself into a coma, this movie should do the trick. Sorry. Not sorry.

I almost push the "eject" button .... if it was not for his lovely wife he came to meet at home each day, welcoming him with all those baked cookies and more...... she seems naked every day in bed, so he must have at least something that excites him everyday otherwise his life is utterly boring!!!!

A poetic movie about a poet bus-driver in a town founded by a poet. A world full of visual and virtual poetry.

Boring.

One star, only because Adam Driver stars, otherwise complete waste of time.

I don't know what to say about this film. Paterson, a Bus Driver in Paterson, New Jersey, observes and often interacts with people on his bus route, with people he meets on the streets of Paterson, people he sees in his favorite bar, and his young wife and some may say rather ugly dog. These are the kind of people that one never, ever sees in American films.

OK, if you are looking for simple and mildly amusing, you 'may' like this. If you are not a poet at heart, I doubt you would get much you of it. I sort of liked it and it did keep us interested, but I did feel some minor frustration over if there was any kind of direction the characters were heading in, as there was little story. More of an examination of the characters and significance of mundane life observances.

Pages of quotes in IMDb. These from Japanese poet among the best in mho:

My poetry only in Japanese. No translation. Poetry in translations is like taking a shower with a raincoat on. ... Sometimes an empty page presents more possibilities.

This one on the very talented bulldog is not in IMDb yet:

Hey, yo! Yo my man, lemme holla at you a minute. Hey yo, that's a English Bulldog, right?
-Uh... yeah.
Yo I told you man, them dogs are poppin' right now. Yah that dog mad expensive, right?
-Yeah, well... expensive to feed.

Ya know what I mean? Like dog-jacked my G. Ya feel me? Ya'll look on that?
-Dog-jacked... Well it gives me somethin' to look forward to then I guess.
Aight money... Hey yo, be safe out here, aight? And cuff that dog, it's real out here bruh.
-Alright. I'm gonna go cuff ya Marvin.
Okay Marvin, don't get dog-jacked.
