Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after and successful performers. However, it cannot be denied. In addition, he is an expert at getting roles in films of the highest calibre. Even though he turned down several good ideas, nearly all of the films in which he has starred have been among the finest of the year.
It was difficult to chose only ten of Leonardo DiCaprio’s outstanding films (Sorry, Catch Me If You Can!). Blood Diamond, we apologise!) . With his recent nomination for Best Actor for Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood, it appears that he will have a steady supply of future employment opportunities. The top 10 Leonardo DiCaprio films of all time have been listed. Oh, and I apologise about Shutter Island as well! This will be a difficult list to compile.
What’s Eating Gilbert Grape
Johnny Depp was the star of this 1993 thriller, but Leonardo DiCaprio, who portrayed a mentally handicapped young man named Arnie, stole the show. In addition, Leo was nominated for his first Oscar, which he deserved.
The narrative of the film revolves around a young man played by Johnny Depp. When his father commits suicide and his mother’s severe depression forces her to gain a substantial amount of weight, he is compelled to assume the role of leader of his family’s household. However, I would like to underline that the picture is carried by Leonardo DiCaprio’s extraordinary performance.
What a total and complete letdown! Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet would appear in a film together for the second time. It was absolutely nobody’s fanfiction about what would have happened to Jack and Rose from Titanic if Jack had lived. This was the second time that these two performers appeared in a film together.
In this film based on Richard Yates’s novel of the same name, Leonardo DiCaprio portrays a true son of a b*tch. In the film, the protagonist cheats on his wife and has frequent confrontations with her. However, it is not precisely something that will appeal to the people.
However, for a 1950s film about a marriage in dissolution, it feels painfully modern. This may be due to the presence of significant themes such as adultery and existential agony.
Michael Shannon also appears as a character in the film, portraying a man with a history of mental illness and a reputation for expressing his viewpoint even in perilous situations. It’s likely that this is not Leo’s finest performance because he goes a bit crazy with the shouting at times, but the film itself is a force of nature. One of the finest films directed by Sam Mendes.
Django Unchained, the western directed by Quentin Tarantino, features stylized violence, humorous dialogue, and excellent music. In addition, it boasts a distinguishing feature that only one other Quentin Tarantino picture possesses: Leonardo DiCaprio. Even though I wouldn’t rank Django particularly high on my list of Tarantino’s films, Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance as a charming scumbag in Django sort of makes up for the boring second half of the film that takes place when he’s not in it.
The plot revolves around Jamie Foxx’s character, a bounty hunter who is educated by Christoph Waltz’s. After using their combined firepower to eliminate three robbers, they embarked on a journey to bring Django’s wife back to safety.
The plot is driven by Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance as plantation owner Calvin J. Candie. The actor was so immersed in the part that he cut his hand while performing, yet he did not allow it to hinder his performance.
That demonstrates real commitment. Since B-level Tarantino is almost A-level for everyone else, I consider Django to be one of the best films Leonardo DiCaprio has ever appeared in, despite my opinion that it is comparable to Tarantino’s lower tiers of excellence.
“The course of future events. The path leading to the future. The path leading to the future.” The journey to fame and descent into an obsessive-compulsive disease that Leonardo DiCaprio depicts as Howard Hughes in this film are the stuff of legend, and Leonardo DiCaprio’s performance as Hughes may be his best work to date.
This is not, however, a list of the best roles Leonardo DiCaprio has ever acted. It is a list of the finest films he has ever produced. The Aviator is an exceptionally good film.
Martin Scorsese’s biographical film on Howard Hughes may not even make you aware that you’re learning about one of the most fascinating figures in American history. The Aviator is a picture that will endure the test of time, from Howard Hughes’s period as director of Hell’s Angels through his connection with Audrey Hepburn (impeccably depicted by Cate Blanchett) to Hughes’s spiral into insanity. The telling of the story is the most important component.
The Revenant, which also has one of Tom Hardy’s most terrifying performances ever, is an intensely emotional thriller and western fantasy picture. Since viewing movie in theatres, I have been haunted by the dreadful journey into the dreadful Dakotas. Hugh Glass (Leonardo DiCaprio) is a frontiersman searching for the killer of his Native American child.
For the record, Leonardo DiCaprio won his first Academy Award for Best Actor for this role. Despite the possibility that the story deviates from historical fact, the video is beautiful and frightening enough for me to disregard this and “enjoy” what is depicted. Permit me to use the word “enjoy” to describe how I feel about the entire situation. In the confrontation between Leo and Tom Hardy, DiCaprio employs Gleeson’s corpse as a ruse… It is difficult to imagine something more significant than that.
The Departed, for which Scorsese was nominated alongside Mark Wahlberg, ultimately won the Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Director. In the film, undercover officer Leonardo DiCaprio infiltrates a criminal organisation led by Jack Nicholson. Did you even read my last sentence? I have nothing else to say about this flick.
Obviously, there is more. Matt Damon leads as a criminal posing as a police officer in The Departed, and the rest of the cast is equally strong. The subsequent picture is stressful and involves one of the most horrific and sudden deaths in film history. You never know where the plot will go until the heartbreaking conclusion.
Because Titanic is so well-known, I do not need to seek up the date of its sinking in order to recall it. The year 1997 is one I will never forget. That was when everyone was declaring with open arms, “I’m the ruler of the world!” Due mostly to Leonardo DiCaprio’s star power, the picture became the talk of the town at the time. Because he was featured in so many teen dream magazines when he was younger, Leo is now one of the most acclaimed actors in Hollywood.
You’ve already heard it everything. With his hands on the door, the unfortunate man freezes to death on the doomed ship that struck an iceberg. Prepare yourself to shed some tears. After viewing Titanic, young women around the world demanded that Jack paint them in the likeness of one of his French girls, and this demand endures. Additionally, the picture features Billy Zane and Kathy Bates. This is one of the greatest films ever made.
The Wolf of Wall Street
Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese have worked together on five films, the most recent of which, The Wolf of Wall Street, is the actor’s best work to date. Leonardo DiCaprio portrays Jordan Belfort, a fictitious stock broker based on a real person who earned a fortune via dealing in penny stocks. This is another Martin Scorsese-directed biopic starring Leonardo DiCaprio.
However, in contrast to The Aviator, which starred Leonardo DiCaprio as Howard Hughes and was set between the 1920s and 1940s, The Wolf of Wall Street was produced in the 1980s and exemplified the decade’s notoriously filthy excesses. And Leo is simply too good at portraying a pompous Wall Street individual.
It was the role he was born to play, with his hair slicked back and eyes emanating such a cunning and seductive aura. Similar to the Oliver Stone-directed film Wall Street, but on steroids.
As Belfort’s ruthless business partner, Jonah Hill delivers the strongest performance of his career, while Margot Robbie portrays Belfort’s impossibly beautiful trophy wife. Matthew McConaughey appeared chest-thumping and whistling a ridiculous tune. It is without a doubt one of the funniest films in which Leo has ever appeared, and at the time of its debut, it held the record for the most f-bombs ever used in a single film. That certainly says something.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood
When it was all said and done… Leonardo DiCaprio and Quentin Tarantino are currently at the apex of their careers in Hollywood (along with Brad Pitt, of course). Consequently, you are aware that it must rank quite high on this list. Rick Dalton, portrayed by Leonardo DiCaprio, is an unsuccessful former TV western star who seeks to shift into the film industry.
In this scene, Dalton botches his lines, causing him to become enraged. This causes Dalton to flip out during auditions, including one instance in which he becomes enraged in his trailer after flubbing his lines. And would it surprise you to find that the entire sequence was created spontaneously?
Once Upon a Time, on the other hand, captures a moment from a bygone era of Hollywood in a manner that is all the more remarkable for its attention to detail.
Undoubtedly, this is another one of Tarantino’s revisionist history lectures, similar to Django Unchained and Inglourious Basterds. However, the entire film is of such excellent quality, both in terms of production and humour, that it is one of the most enjoyable films starring Leonardo DiCaprio. This one will stand the test of time. I am acutely conscious of it.
