The Maryland Trilogy

Jeff Krulik has been a CUFF favorite since his jaw-dropping Heavy Metal Parking Lot played the festival in 1997, and with the excellent Hitler's Hat (2003) he broke out of pop-culture kitsch into more serious themes. But this trio of short videos scrapes the bottom of the barrel: “Still Obsessed: The Further Adventures of Neil Keller” revisits the crazed collector of Jewish autographs who starred in Krulik's 2000 short Obsessed With Jews, and Heavy Metal Picnic 1985 is another exercise in dirt-head anthropology, taped not by Krulik but by one Rudy Childs. Sandwiched in between is the brief and modestly charming “The Legend of Merv Conn,” in which an 85-year-old accordionist entertains at a meeting of the Masons. 72 min.
