Yes, a masterpiece. The entire premise of the movie is wildly original,
even coming from WOODY ALLEN who continually cranks out one interesting film
after another to this day.
The label of mock-umentary just doesn't do justice to the uniqueness of this
film. ALLEN and his amazingly talented staff created a movie that no other
director could have made nor even thought of doing. Some of the humor is
rather modern like the forward references to self-gratification during the
psychiatrist scenes with MIA FARROW. But mostly, it's filled with humor
from another time and place which we'll never return.
To me, one of the wonderful aspects of this is the period music dispersed
throughout with joyful admiration. We are lucky that ALLEN has continued to
use music from the early part of the 20th century. I think no other
director has so consistently had such a reverence for this wonderful music.
Perhaps no other director has such a strong knowledge of it
That WOODY ALLEN normally portrays himself as a nebbishy character in many
of his own movies works so well in this movie. A more aggressive person who
becomes a chameleon would not have worked as well at all. I am glad that
MIA FARROW was still associated with him when he made this film, I think no
other modern actress could have pulled this off as well as she did. She has
that timeless look that is appealing but has a far-off
The flavor of the period-looking cinematography and photography is part of
the genius of the implementation here. It is so right on the money. The
flickering of projectors, the out-of-focus look to so man scenes shot today
meld amazingly well with the contrived shots.
THINK ABOUT THIS - this is years before CGI took over Hollywood...years
before FORREST GUMP and countless of other knock-offs have proliferated in
movies. Gee whiz, there is CGI in so many movies these days. I watched a
DVD of a recent movie recently which used special effects in the most
unexpected, unlikely and unnecessary parts you'd be surprised.
Yes, ZELIG is a masterpiece and I only feel sorry for those who cannot see
the astounding piece of cinema this is.
