Leonardo DiCaprio is one of Hollywood’s most respected actors. Here is a list of his 10 greatest performances.
3 – ROMEO + JULIET by Baz Luhrmann (1996) / Having officially been elevated to the role of the dreamy-looking bad boy in The Basketball Diaries, Romeo + Juliet was arguably the film in which he became the romantic teen idol. Luhrmann’s take on the Shakespearean play is ingenious or obnoxious, according to one’s point of view. In the midst of the kinetic (Eisenstein-like) visual translation and chaotic flamboyance, all DiCaprio really needs to do is stand still and smile, so we can take a good look at his electric blue eyes.
