This novel take on the Shakespeare classic dynamically reimagines the story’s gender-bending romance in the near future, with a clever conceit that should have the Bard dancing in his grave. Taipei locations are reinvented in a gloriously original avant-garde guerilla-theater style. Nonstop whimsical vignettes, not to mention a plethora of quirky characters, build an alternate universe that puts the so-called real world in illuminating perspective. A triumph for both queer and independent cinema, _As We Like It_’s gleeful pranskterism is fun and thought-provoking, organically creating a brilliant cause célèbre for Taiwan’s rainbow community.
