Top 10 Movies Of Leonardo DiCaprio

Ask him to be a Cop, he will play it! Ask him to be a Con, he will do even better! Undoubtedly, Leonardo DiCaprio is synonymous to almost perfect and is the undisputed face of present day method acting which demands to step too far beyond the comfort zone. DiCaprio made his acting debut in the early 1990s by acting in ad films and later on T.V. Be it the little Arnie Grape in 'What's Eating Gilbert Grape' or the 80-year-old F.B.I. founder in J. Edgar, Leo has clearly defined that drama has surely no limits. Here is a list of Top 10 Movies Of Leonardo DiCaprio in which five of them is directed by Martin Scorsese.

10.) J. Edgar: The story revolves around J. Edgar Hoover who was the head of the FBI for nearly 50 years and DiCaprio properly maintained all the ups and downs. No doubt this Clint Eastwood biopic of an FBI Director and the rise of FBI is a gem and is a must watch for those who still doubt Leonardo to be a dynamic actor.

9.) What's Eating Gilbert Grape: Starring two major stars of Hollywood: Johnny Depp and Leonardo DiCaprio (Both of them almost unrecognizable in the movie), the movie depicts a beautiful story of Gilbert Grape(Johnny Depp) who has to shoulder the family's responsibilities after his father's death and take care of his mentally ill brother and morbidly obese mother. Leo's role could have been justified only with an Oscar for a supporting role and this cinema is an incredibly detailed form of art and self-obligation.

8.) Gangs Of New York: Young Amsterdam (Leonardo DiCaprio) in 1863, returns to New York in order to seek revenge against Bill the Butcher, his father's killer. Young Leo has a mesmerizing charisma and along with the brutal war and in a parallel manner, there is a sweet love story. Daniel Day-Lewis was just a perfect villain. A man of honor, courage and justifies the title of a butcher with his gory acts.

7.) Django Unchained: Quentin Tarantino waited a really long time to do a movie with Leonardo DiCaprio and this movie was considered as almost flawless by many critics and fans. Starring Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz this movie portrays the life and journey of a slave named Django who eventually becomes a 'Freeman'. DiCaprio plays the owner of a plantation and a slave dealer and is introduced after a long time yet he is able to leave an equal mark. Thundering Shotguns and roaring pistols made this movie a success.

6.) The Wolf of Wall Street: Playboy, Cocaine addict and a thick wallet guy, Jordan Belfort was responsible for one of the biggest Wall Street Scam. It almost felt like Scorsese made Goodfellas 2.0 and the traditional Mafia was replaced by the real wolves and hence the movie was named as The Wolf of Wall Street. It's a true story and is a complete fun ride and ends on a serious note.

5.) The Revenant: Much awaited movie and an amazing piece of art which finally made it possible for DiCaprio to stand with an Academy Award. Hugh Glass, who went on an expedition in 1823 was attacked by a bear and was left behind by his other mates to die in the snow. Alejandro G. Iñárritu was successful in delivering the thoughts and actions without many dialogues.

4.) The Aviator: Story of a man's personal desire for perfection and a comeback which transformed the aviation industry. Howard Hughes started his career as a filmmaker with his interest highly inclined towards Airplanes and later went to experiment on them by designing new models and eventually founding TWA as a rival to Pan Am Airlines. Hughes was germophobic from an early age and was a victim of mental illness. Once he locked himself in a theater room for a period of 4 months.

3.) Inception: This movie shattered the stereotype belief that Leonardo DiCaprio can't act in a sci-fi film. Nolan's detailed cinematography made this a huge success both critically and commercially. Leo who plays a thief in the movie plants an idea of an impossible move in the mind of a CEO and this was done by getting indulged in the deepest layer of one's dream.

2.) The Departed: An undercover guy and a mole in the police both are trying to penetrate and infiltrate the system by identifying each other. Boston Police is waging a war against Irish-American organized crime and the syndicate is headed by Frank Costello. Martin Scorsese depicted his mastery by a fabulous screenplay and his hard work by entitled in the Oscar Awards.

1.) Shutter Island: Undoubtedly the best work by Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese. Ben Kingsley and Mark Ruffalo further added the required essence of drama and it's ending is still a matter of debate. This movie literally broke me down because of its tragic ending and is one of the best pieces of art till date.
