Re: “Cinema Clips: Paterson

This is a skimpy, rushed and superficial review which lacks any form of criticism, analysis and depth. There's no attempt to analyze Paterson's character or his motivation for writing poetry. There's no description of the relationship between Paterson and Laura, nor is there any mention of the culmination of events, over an entire week, that explore and define Paterson's psyche. A devastating loss occurs towards the end of the film, and a beautifully filmed redemption is ultimately realized. Yet this Grimm review stolidly sticks to cliche, formula and ultimately, a contempt of the viewer's intelligence.
