Tells its story just fine, the content never reaches the potential of its interesting premise but is acceptable nonetheless.

Poster for Paterson

Paterson

5.5

2016, Drama, Comedy, Love

There is probably some artsy meaning to it all but the average Joe Bloggs like me just saw a bus driver who writes random poems and not a lot else.
