A hilarious mockumentary from Woody Allen, about a strange chameleon-like person, Leonard Zelig (Allen), who became a media star in 1920's and 1930's. Dr. Fletcher (Mia Farrow) attempts to delve into the mystery of this character, who is a complete enigma to the world at large.

Sometimes the humor doesn't work and sometimes it does. What you should really see this for is the brilliant technical achievements, as Allen and Farrow are integrated into old newsreels and footage with graceful ease. This is all the more amazing when you realize that this was before special effects wizards started using computers to do stuff like that. It's not a great Allen film, but you will still find some enjoyable moments to tide you over.

My Rating = Three Stars
