Goodbye, Dragon Inn

Dir. Tsai Ming-liang, 2003, 82 mins. 35mm. With Lee Kang-sheng, Chen Shiang-chyi, Kiyonobu Mitamura, Chun Shih. It’s the last night for a crumbling movie theater in Taipei, and the film is Dragon Inn (1967), the seminal wuxia by Taiwan-based filmmaker King Hu. Filled with expertly timed sight gags, Goodbye, Dragon Inn is Tsai’s rueful backwards glance at the disappearance of the filmgoing culture of his youth—and one of the seminal films of the 21st century.
