Did you know that comedian Louis C.K. wrote and directed a 1998 film called Tomorrow Night? Well, now you do. And hey, look at that! Just in time to snag it for $5 on his website.

The film starred Chuck Sklar but featured other smaller appearances by a host of other big names including Steve Carell, Robert Smigel, Amy Poehler, and Todd Barry. The films is shot in black & white and was shown at the Sundance Film Festival in 1998.

Here's a quick synopsis courtesy IMDb:

Charles is the owner of a photo-shop. He is not too friendly and spends his evenings alone, and one day he finally decides to get a social life. He meets elderly Florence, who is tormented by her gambling husband Lester and longs for the son Willie she hasn't seen or heard of for 20 years.

From the YouTube comments:

"Looks like Ingmar Bergman and David Lynch dropped some acid, tag-teamed on Cherry Vanilla with Andy Warhol, spawned a Love child who then grew up to make this film and edit this trailer! WTF? Great bunch of young (and old) comedic talent, though."


Of course, the $5 online release thing is now a Louis C.K. trademark. He first did it with his DRM-free Live at the Beacon Theater special and has since released other content in the same manner.
