Jem Cohen's 2012 feature film Museum Hours focuses on the burgeoning relationship between Johann, a guard at Vienna's Kunsthistorisches Art Museum, and Anne, an American denizen of the museum. Formerly a road manager for rock bands, Johann has a discerning eye for both the artwork and the visitors to the museum as they offer their own various interpretations and sometimes unintentional reproductions of the works. In June, the New York Times's A.O. Scott said: ''Museum Hours seems to wander and ruminate, collecting stray moments and fleeting impressions that gradually — and perhaps only in retrospect — snap together to reveal an intriguing pattern of emotion and significance.''
