Zelig (1983)
Fictional documentary about the life of human chameleon Leonard Zelig, a man who becomes a celebrity in the 1920s due to his ability to look and act like whoever is around him. Clever editing places Zelig in real newsreel footage of Woodrow Wilson, Babe Ruth, and others.

In Zelig, Woody Allen plays Leonard Zelig a man that transforms himself into anyone that gets close to him, because of that they call him the chameleon. Afterall, he is just an insecure man that wants to be accepted by everyone. This story is very clever and it's presented to us in mockumentary style, mixing real footage with fiction situations. The editing, the sound and the effects used are amazing!

Very unique stuff! I bet this was very innovative at the time the film was made.
