Two fine NPR pieces—an interview with director Jim Jarmusch, whose new film was inspired by William Carlos Williams‘ poetic sequence Paterson, and a review of the movie—have led me to add this film to my watch list.
Poets, Jarmusch says in the interview, “deal with changing your consciousness. … [They] are … kind of magical people. They should just be given whatever they want.”
Now who could disagree with that?
