According to the Internet Movie Data Base, the answer is yes, sort of . . .

This is the review for the movie at IMDB:

What the creator of this piece is trying to get at is the overall message that Holden preaches throughout the novel. Ultimately if this was to be adapted to film it would go against everything Holden stood for, which is why this artist has chosen to give us 75 minutes of Blue screen. If this book was turned into a film it would defeat the entire purpose of the book in the first place, and could very well be considered the greatest juxtaposition in the history of cinema. The whole process of adapting novels into film is one of the highest forms of capital gain known to man and Holden, who would deem their creators "phonies", wants rid his world of these beings. So why this artist decided to use 75 minutes of Blue screen basically tells us to go read the book to understand his "movie".

So, an hour and fifteen minutes of nothing . . .
