Zelig (1983) dir. Woody Allen

A “documentary” on the life of Leonard Zelig, the “human chameleon” – a man who, out of his helpless desire to fit in and be liked, develops a talent of taking on the characteristics of the people that are currently around him.
An excellent addition to the mockumentary genre by one of cinema’s great filmmakers – Woody Allen. A very original way of telling this unique and interesting story, with the expected light and cerebral sense of humor that is a hallmark of Allen‘s.
Embedded real-life archive footage with clever use of the technology in disposal at the time. Appearances by many of the most prominent figures of the XX century, including Charles Lindbergh, Al Capone, Charlie Chaplin, Adolf Hitler, Lou Gehrig, Babe Ruth and Pope Pius XI, among many others.
Eclectic soundtrack, as can be expected of any Woody Allen picture.
