Zelig*

  • 1983 ----- b & w ----- 79 min ----- dvd
  • (Written and directed by Woody Allen; with Woody Allen, Mia Farrow) This faux-documentary from Woody Allen tells the tale of a strange little man who wanted so badly to fit in that he was able to change like a chameleon to blend in with his surroundings, whether that meant being a musician in a black band, a psychiatrist in a mental institution, or a member of the Nazi party. Mia Farrow is Dr. Eudora Fletcher, who not only treats Zelig with her radical psychiatric theories but eventually falls in love with the lovable loser, saving him from those who want to put him on display so people can watch Leonard turn Chinese, French or obese. [Letterboxed] (Restricted to use on University of Washington campuses only)
