Not Tonight, a short noir film by Ray Ottulich

Thanks to Ray Ottulich for sending along this little gem of film noir, starring Joan Denyse. When Noir Nation was still in its publishing infancy, Ray kindly allowed us to use some of his masterful Flickr photos to illustrate our first promotional trailer.

Unlike many short films that seem unfocused, have undeveloped characters, or end without resolution or a sense of completion, Not Tonight does it all in 2 minutes and 38 seconds, including opening and closing credits.

The Femme Fatale is glamorous but seedy, which as a matter of language seems impossible, but yet there she is: glamorous but seedy.

She has a choice to make. It involves a man and a gun. She makes it. What happens to him? Watch and see…
