Boston.com is running a message board that asks members of the Red Sox Nation for their top 10 ways of dealing with Sox Stress [check your DSM-IV, it must be in theah]. Last year, the cinetrix went to double features. This year, were she in Boston, she might amble over to the Harvard Film Achive, where director Tsai Ming-liang presents a sneak preview of his latest film, Goodbye Dragon Inn, "an affectionate, almost wordless homage to the shared experience of moviegoing," at 7. The movie clocks in at a brisk 82 minutes, which could put you with the rest of the suffering faithful at Charlie's within minutes of tonight's 8:19 p.m. start time, exuding serenity.
The cinetrix understands if this might all prove a little too much for one evening. Never fear, Dragon hits the Brattle October 29. And Tsai Ming-liang will also appear at a free BU Cinematheque screening of his first film, Rebels of the Neon God, Thursday night at 7 at 640 Commonwealth Ave., Room B-05.
