Zelig (1983)

In Woody Allen's brilliant pre-Forrest Gump mock-documentary:

  • Gordon Willis' cinematography that painstakingly matched authentic early 20th century newsreels and archival photographs with the look of this Depression-era period film
  • chameleon-like Leonard Zelig (Woody Allen) - a man who was a celebrity of his time - appearing between President Coolidge and presidential candidate Herbert Hoover, and alongside others such as baseball player Babe Ruth, boxer Jack Dempsey, tycoon publisher William Randolph Hearst, movie star Charles Chaplin, the pope, the Fuhrer himself, and the writer F. Scott Fitzgerald
  • the scenes of real-life writer personages Susan Sontag and Saul Bellows providing commentary on Zelig's cultural influence
  • Patrick Horgan's authentic BBC documentary-style narration
