Another look at Noble Things

Mike Sudhalter  |  January 31, 2009

I changed my mind and watched "Noble Things" again. It was one of those movies where sometimes you have to get an extra look at things and take it all in.

Unlike some independent movies, it didn't seem any different than a big budget movie - in that the production and acting was very professional. That's why it's no surprise that it was featured next to 'W' - the George W. Bush biopic - at the Austin Film Festival.

The numerous flashbacks all made a lot more sense the second time around, for obvious reasons.

According to actor/writer Brett Moses - a southeast Texas native - not one, but three Hurricanes delayed portions of the filming.

Dealing with guilt isn't easy, and that's what much of the movie is about. There's definitely a Texas feel to it with all of the scenes being filmed locally, and you get a deeper appreciation for the sacrifice of Jimmy Wayne Collins' brother as the film goes on.

Upon watching it a second time, you also feel sympathy with the characters - Sheriff Claire and Amber - in trying to keep the Collins brothers out of trouble.

And anyone who has ever visited a dying relative - after being away for a long time - can relate to the heart-wrenching scenes with JW and his father.

Fortunately, Moses agreed to do a Q&A to tell fans more about the film here on the Country Mike blog, and we look forward to visiting with him on it within the next week or so.
