Goodbye, Dragon Inn

Goodbye, Dragon Inn

Synopsis

"Goodbye, Dragon Inn […] is both a devoted homage to director King Hu and a melancholic yet humorous look at the sometimes forsaken state of cinema – and cinemas – today. Tsai begins with Hu’s 1966 masterpiece, Dragon Inn, projecting it as a backdrop for his own story and borrowing much of its dialogue: the film’s words resound, distorted, inside a large theatre in Taipei where it is screened in front of a gradually thinning audience." – Giovanni Fulvi
