I saw this in (I think) 1972 - several times (in a class, in an experimental film showing, and once more in conjunction with the class). I was originally interested because of the name "Zorn's Lemma" - which turns out to be equivalent to the mathematical "Axiom of Choice" - and as a math major the axiom of choice fascinated me (still does).
I don't know what I expected, but it wasn't what I saw - and yet what I saw was somehow compelling, beautiful and unforgettable.
Don't expect a plot (in the usual sense anyway), spectacular photography, or instant gratification. And don't give up on it too soon.
Do expect a beautiful, challenging, contemplative hour of film on the nature of film, of reading and writing, and of structure.
I wish I could find a copy of it now.
