As far as an experimental film, it's fine. It just didn't need to be a full feature. It's similar to 'Wings of Desire' which was made 3 years earlier in the overlapping of voices. Unlike 'Wings' though, it's hard to keep track of who's saying what, or even if they're really even talking to each other. More like quotes from books, or repeating what other people are saying. Eventually you just go insane.
