This Week's Day-by-Day Picks

WED 15

Film critics' bomb alert: If a movie is written, directed, filmed, produced, starred in, cast, and catered by the same person, then pucker up, baby -- you've got a lemon. Thus, things don't bode well for The Perfect Song, South Florida filmmaker Billy Yeager's latest opus, which debuts tonight at the Carefree Theater (2000 S. Dixie Hwy., West Palm Beach). Yeager is our homegrown, obscenity-spouting version of Plan 9 creator Ed Wood; if 80 percent of success is showing up, Yeager, who also acts as his own agent, is persistently present and accounted for. Song's semi-autobiographical plot, partially filmed in Lake Worth (we wish we'd been a fly on the Lizard Bar's wall during that shoot) follows a "mad genius composer," played by -- guess who! -- in his quest to pen the perfect musical composition, presumably while being ceaselessly seduced by supermodels. We smell a future cult classic. Screening starts at 7 p.m. Call 561-833-7305. (Gail Shepherd)
