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.
Revolutionary Road 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.
Django Unchained 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 Aviator “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.
The Revenant 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.
The Departed 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.
