Rather addictive boredom
Watching a building being erected a great fun? No, but discussing the event from any viewpoint while watching it could augment the pleasure considerably. It has anyway been a great choice from John Lennon and Yoko Ono to select a really interesting building for the subject of their film; an ordinary house could have made a way more boring viewing perhaps. There are not basically many films whose interest is so much dependent of viewers' free association. A row a still shots from a building being erected means very different thing to you if you're an engineer or if you are a woman pregnant with a baby. As the film does not contain any 'action' the Hotel being constructed 'happens' in a way baby does in mother's womb.
