Of course. I've been to public screenings of two James Benning films, one of which, 'Ruhr,' had far less shots than this (two hours, six shots if I remember correctly). Both played to packed houses and although Ruhr had a bunch of walkouts, most stayed to the end. Personally, I find the stillness of his films relaxing, beautiful, and good for clearing my mind of clutter.
