Top 15 best films with Leonardo DiCaprio. Leonardo DiCaprio – movies list


This guy’s life

Soon, Caroline meets a pleasant man Dwight and starts an affair with him. But it soon turns out that she brought a real despot to the house, who turns her life into a nightmare.

DiCaprio was lucky to play his first serious role in the film, where Robert De Niro, already famous at that time, became his screen partner.

What’s eating Gilbert Grape?

Gilbert Grape lives in a small town where literally everyone knows each other. And it so happened that it was he who had to provide for the whole family: the mother stays at home, the sisters cannot arrange their personal life, and the younger brother is feeble-minded. Gilbert has no chance of getting out of the routine until Becky’s girlfriend stops in town. Now his dreams are connected with something completely different.

DiCaprio was not yet 20 years old when he starred in this picture. The role of the feeble-minded Arnie Grape earned him his first Oscar and Golden Globe nominations.

Fast and dead

In a small town in the Wild West, only the speed of fire dictates the law. Once upon a time the bandit Herod seized power here, and now he arranges a competition of shooters. A huge sum of money is at stake, and many want to compete for it, including the son of Herod, nicknamed the Kid, and the mysterious Ellen.

Basketball Diary

The real story of musician and writer Jim Carroll, based on his autobiography. The main character is a sixteen-year-old teenager. He writes good poetry and plays basketball well. But drugs come into the life of Jim and his friends, and this leads them to degradation, and then to prison.

Romeo + Juliet

Rethinking the classic tragedy of William Shakespeare. The plot and even the text completely repeat the original. But the action itself was transferred to the present, where the story of the tragic love of two teenagers from warring families is revealed.


The story of the trip of the luxurious Titanic liner and its wreck. While sailing aboard the ship, a romantic relationship develops between a girl from high society and a poor artist.

It was this film that lifted Leonardo DiCaprio to the top of the cinematic Olympus. James Cameron’s picture received 11 Oscars, and although Leo himself was not even nominated, after the release of Titanic, the actor gained millions of fans around the world.

The man in the iron mask

King Louis XIV is confident that nothing can shake his power. He is afraid of only one person, chained in an iron mask and imprisoned. But when the king crosses all the boundaries of what is permitted, the legendary musketeers decide to free the prisoner.

Leonardo DiCaprio turned out to be one of those successful actors who happened to play two roles in one film at once. The images of the king and his twin brother turned out to be completely different, but equally interesting.


Actor and Role: Leonardo DiCaprio – Hugh Glass
Cinema Search Rating: 7.8
IMDb Rating: 8.0
Year: 2015
Country: USA, Hong Kong, Taiwan
Director: Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu (Birdman, Babylon, 21 Grams, “Bitch-love”)
Genre: adventure, action, drama, biography

The film is based in part on the biography of Hugh Glass, an American hunter and mountain guide who lived at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries. He tells an incomplete story, for example, little is said about his youth, as well as about the past of the navigator (not counting a couple of flashbacks and a son from an Indian girl). The plot is more focused on the most famous incident in his life, when after a fight with the Indians, a group of hunters split into two parts, a bear attacked Hugh Glass and two comrades left him to die, killing his half-blood son. It is worth paying attention to the English title of the film – “revenant”. This word means a soul that returned back to earth to take revenge on the offender.

The definition just reveals the further development of the film and its direction – this is a movie about revenge and survival for her sake, and since the directors include Iñarritu, it is also about levitating women, ghosts and symbolic images. And let it be clear from the name that the main character will survive, but it is no less interesting to watch how he tastes raw fish, climbs inside a horse, admires the installation of “The Apotheosis of War”, more than once runs away from annoying Indians and beautifully stands in a ruined church.

Why is it worth seeing?

  • for the sake of Leonardo DiCaprio, who depicts all shades of horror, pain and despair on his face (it was not for nothing that he received an Oscar for this film)
  • because of Lubetzky’s camera work with a long battle plan, where the camera goes from victim to killer who becomes victim, with panoramic views of snowy Canada, swaying pine tops, and amazing footage that makes the viewer feel like flying into the abyss, crawling inside the killed animal and examine in every detail the endless starry sky
  • to see how the story of revenge turns into a philosophical parable about the meaning of life

Actor and Role: Leonardo DiCaprio – Billy Costigan
Cinema Search Rating: 8.5
IMDb Rating: 8.5
Year: 2006
Country: USA
Director: Martin Scorsese (“The Irishman”, “Vinyl”, “The Wolf of Wall Street”, ” Island of the Damned “,” Casino “,” Nice Guys “)
Genre: thriller, drama, crime

Remake of the Hong Kong film “Castling Double” about a police informer in the lair of the mafia and the “son” of a mafia among the guards of the law. The first is Billy Costigan, who, after studying at the police academy, went to jail, then started selling drugs on the street and only after a while managed to get into the trust of the Irish crime boss Frank Costello. The second is Colin Sullivan, who at the age of 13 sold the soul of a mafioso for bread, sausage and comics and went to study at the academy at his behest. Former classmates, and now apostates, do not suspect that they are working on different sides of the barricades, but in essence they are doing the same thing – they are handing over the plans of “their” people.

This game of thwarted operations is cracked when both Castello and Police Sergeant Dignam begin to suspect of a “rat” in their entourage. So the guys get the task to find each other and eliminate, and in the meantime, also fight for the heart of the charming criminal psychologist Madeline Maidden. But it turns out that they are not the only ones working for opposite organizations. And since with their investigation Billy and Colin threaten to rip off the masks from all the dummies, it will not do without hot shootings and mountains of corpses.

Why is it worth a look?

  • This is one of those films about the world of cops that does not try to look for a psychological background in the people of this profession and does not pretend to be a high message about an unfair reward for good and bad guys, but simply shows an entertaining thriller about an escape from death, but does it in such a way that it is impossible to take your eyes off the screen
  • for Jack Nicholson, balancing stand-up comedian and manic killer as Costello
  • because of the soundtrack consisting of songs by the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd

The wolf of Wall Street

Actor and Role: Leonardo DiCaprio – Jordan Belfort
Cinema Search Rating: 7.9
IMDb Rating: 8.2
Year: 2013
Country: USA
Director: Martin Scorsese (“Irishman”, “Vinyl”, “Isle of the Damned”, “Casino”, “Nice Guys”)
Genre: Drama, Crime, Biography

The film is based on the memoir of Jordan Belfort, a Wall Street financial broker who was sentenced to three years in prison for fraud. The events of “Wolf” unfold in 1987, when a young and ambitious guy Jordan gets a job at an investment bank. But as soon as his business begins to creep up the hill after a series of failures, the collapse of the Dow Jones index closes the bank. His wife Teresa asks not to leave the profession, since Jordan has everything for her – the ability to manipulate clients, innate charisma and leadership skills. Soon, the man, along with a friend, the trader Donnie, opens his own company.

Capital grows, and after it the desire to “burn” your life. Endless parties with drugs, prostitutes and dwarfs instead of darts become part of Jordan’s lifestyle. He divorces his first wife and finds himself a new one – supermodel Naomi. And maybe he would have thrown lobsters at law enforcement officers, drove drunken helicopters and organized orgies in the office, but his too quick enrichment attracts the attention of the FBI, which begins to suspect Jordan of criminal machinations.

Why is it worth a look?

  • Leonardo DiCaprio worked with Belfort for many months in order to accurately convey all the moments from his life, all his feelings and emotions, and then also for a long time persuaded Martin Scorsese to make this film. The same Jordan walk down the stairs to the gym or a motivational speech in the office could be easily entered into acting textbooks. Subsequently, Leo’s friends noted that the actor could not leave this role for a long time and transferred some of the character traits of his character to himself. For the sake of seeing a gallery of beautiful but sickening, disgusting, but endlessly inventive entertainment of millionaires
  • The film tells in some detail about the brokerage life and even shows in action several incomprehensible words from the financial educational program, but, in general, the documentary component rests on how the boss advises the subordinate to masturbate to relieve tension and take cocaine to increase mental alertness

Why is it worth a look?

  • the film reveals billionaire Howard Hughes from two sides (and, in general, says that “rich people are also people, and you should not consider them all darlings of fate with a golden toilet”): the first is a spoiled child craving female attention, and a terrible eccentric a boss who is ready to fire a worker for a wrong look; the second is an irrepressible dreamer who does not allow his carriage with complexes and fears to slow down its composition, heading for a happy future for the sake of jazz compositions of the 30s-40s, processed by Howard Shore of high-quality retro decorations with models of planes of that time, cafes and film studios
