*Online Premiere* This glimpse into the everyday moments of ordinary people is a vivid portrayal of mundanity, vulnerability, and frustration. Brandon Winters directs “The Noodle Effect,” a series of vignettes captured, for the most part, in evocative one-takes. A frail old man spars with his boxing coach on a tennis court; a woman rearranges living room furniture until it consumes her; a young couple eats quietly in a diner. The connections between each aren’t blaring, but there’s a cohesion in the photographic quality of the images and in the sense we’re witnessing private moments of action or reflection (read our interview with Winters here for more on the connections between the vignettes, including an easter egg you may have missed). It’s a remarkably simple piece of observation that resonates with beautifully composed shots and true to life characters and scenes. [Watch on YouTube]. (8 minutes). Director: Brandon Winters.
