dir. Ming-Liang Tsai, Taiwan, 2003, 35mm, color, Mandarin w/ English subtitles, 82 min.

An achingly beautiful love letter to the fading of a movie-going era. On a dark, wet night in a movie palace that has seen better days, a sparse yet diverse audience has come one last time to be entranced by King Hu's 1968 martial-arts classic, Dragon Inn. A nearly narrative-free series of tender vignettes, Tsai's film is bittersweet, gently experimental, and transcendentally captivating.
