    If you have ever wanted to see a documentary about paint drying, then check out "Over Your Cities Grass will Grow." Otherwise, do yourself a favor and steer clear.

    Strange, modernist artist Anselm Kiefer gets a strange modernist documentary in this abstract appreciation of his work in an abandoned silk factory in Barjac, France. Like something out of a post-apocalyptic landscape, his work rises up like derelict buildings from the ashes. Mostly observational, but also incredibly dry, the film alternates between beautiful tracking shots and aimless moments of languid tedium.
