  February, 2000 Revelation Independant Film Festival
Perth, Australia

"...the riotous oddball US short The Chromium Hook and Jeff Krulick's great pop-culture doc I Created Lancelot Link must rate a special mention. All are testament to the power of independent and imaginative filmmaking."

"This short is a pure 24 carot gem. Hilarious from start to finish, Chromium Hook is a work of inspired genius! It lays American small town life bare from teenage rebellion, urban legend, urequited love, weird love triangles, mental insanity, police corruption and much much more. Described as a "mocudramedy" the film is a meticulously constructed and complex intertwining of moments in the life of the small town of Nimrod, USA. Wonderfully scripted with an great eye for every detail (what happens in the background provides some truly side splitting moments) Chromium Hook is a faultless work. An absolute must see and destined for greatness on the indie circuit. "
