This spoof of documentary films stars Woody Allen as Leonard Zelig, the famous "Chameleon Man" of the 1920's, whose personality was so vague he would assume the characteristics of whomever he came into contact with. Filmed in black-and-white, the movie simulates the look of a newsreel, complete with stentorian narration

Annie Hall by Woody Allen ( Visual )
25 editions published between 1977 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 428 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Alvy Singer, a successful New York Jewish comedian and all-in masochist, 16 years in psychoanalysis, meets Annie, a mixed-up Midwestern WASP and tries, Pygmalionlike to reshape her. This is a self-reflexive, quasi-autobiographical mix of screwball comedy, comedy of manners and romantic melodrama using a variety of formal strategies to comment on the past. The fragmented, anecdotal structure is governed by Allen's persona, that of a chaotic psyche which connects ethnic Jewish humour, Groucho, Marx and (Ingmar) Bergmanesque angst. Equally tormented by the big metaphysical questions and the fear of sounding pretensious, Allen, Jan Dawson concludes 'walks like a tightrope stretched taut between illusion and cynicism'

Cinematographer style ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Belying what many think of as the technical orientation of their job, cinematographers can be remarkably loquacious, a fact evident from the beginning of the interviews with 110 prominent practitioners of the craft. The men and women interviewed are interested in discussing the aesthetics and emotional content of light, composition, movement, and color--the building blocks of the film image. Forget directors, actors, and screenwriters: based on this documentary, nobody talks as passionately or poetically about the art of film as cinematographers
