“A bus driver in Paterson…It is very poetic.” Says the Japanese man on a bench. This new trailer for Paterson gives you a good feel and rhythm of Jim Jarmusch’s latest slice of top shelf cinema, without even scratching the surface of all the great treasures buried in the film. Adam Driver drives a bus, writes poetry on his breaks, walks his wife’s dog, and has a pint at the local watering hole. That’s it. Heck, if anything this trailer over-emphasizes many of the ‘plot red-herrings’ of the narrative, because “A trailer has to be exciting, right?” No matter, if it gets butts in seats, all the better for this, one of the best films of the year.
Fun Fact: Look for the young couple from Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom making a cameo on Paterson’s bus.
