The Wedding Banquet Winston Chao, May Chin (1993, FoxVideo, R, priced for rental) As in another frolicsome film about being gay, La Cage Aux Folles, pretense oils the motor of a farce: A gay Taiwanese Manhattan yuppie (Chao) marries an artist (Chin) so he can get his parents off his back. But the parents swoop in from the old country and the quickie wedding goes out of control. Fun rules, but truth prevails in Ang Lee’s warm, smart, silky-smooth, and ultimately wise comedy about the complications gay people endure, sometimes needlessly, as they try to be themselves. A -Lawrence O’Toole
