Best Cinematography

IMDb Wikipedia

Woody Allen plays a man who has the ability to change his physical appearance and traits to those around him in order to fit in. His story is presented through old newsreel footage, both real and recreated, in which Allen inserts himself and the other actors. The gimmick gets old after awhile, and digital technology has somewhat diminished the novelty.
