What is Leonardo DiCaprio’s Best Performance?

Our mission at SAW is to foster conversations about this thing we all love (or love to hate): film/TV. Many of our features are designed with you in mind. Your opinions, to be more to the point. You have ’em. We want to hear ’em.

Question of the Day (QOTD) is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a film/TV-related question that we put to you, the reader. The comments section below is like the feedback box at work; except, in this example, we actually read what you write and care about what you have to say.

Leonardo DiCaprio has been on our screens for over thirty year. The man needs no introduction. He has starred in such critically and commercially successful films as What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993), Romeo + Juliet (1996), Titanic (1997), Catch Me If You Can (2002), Gangs of New York (2002), The Aviator (2004), The Departed (2006), Inception (2010), Django Unchained (2012), The Wolf of Wall Street (2013), The Revenant (2015) and Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019).

With five Academy Award acting nominees (and one win) under his belt, the question I ask today is: what is Leonardo DiCaprio’s best performance?

I’m a fan of DiCaprio’s work. I haven’t seen all of his heavy hitters yet, but I’ve seen enough that I can at least pick what I think is his best performance. Although I want to pick something like Once Upon a Time in Hollywood or Inception, I’m going to go with The Revenant. I fucking hate The Revenant and think it is an extremely boring movie, but DiCaprio was great in it. He certainly earned his Oscar with this role.

So what about you, folks? What movie role do you think has been Leonardo DiCaprio’s best performance?

I’ll see you in the trenches.
