We know one thing for sure about Leonardo DiCaprio’s career and that, it has only gotten bigger and better. He is given one of the most impressive filmographies of any actor of his generation. His work spans a multitude of genres. Even if some of his films don’t quite hit the mark, he still is one of the A-Lister in the film industry. Here are some of DiCaprio’s greatest films ranked from great to good based on Rotten Tomatoes ratings:
- Catch me if you can (2020)
This movie is DiCaprio’s highest-rated film on Rotten Tomatoes. Leonardo as Frank effortlessly charming. This movie is the first collaboration with Steven Spielberg. Massively entertaining and unexpectedly wholesome, it’s a standout in DiCaprio’s storied career.
- The Departed (2006)
Martin Scorsese is infamously known for his direction in gangster crime drama but ‘The Departed’ landed him an Academy Award for Best Director. Billy Costigan, a cop going undercover played by Leonardo DiCaprio is equally remarkable. The director and actor duo have done many films together but this one is considered the best.
- What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)
The film stars Johnny Depp and DiCaprio and they both did a phenomenal job. This film landed Leonardo to be nominated for an Academy Award. DiCaprio plays Arnie with such vulnerability that you can’t help but end up loving him.
- Titanic (1997)
This film is the first one which comes to mind when we mention Leonardo DiCaprio. James Cameron’s epic romance was the “king of the world” and there’s no denying the fact that it is still ruling the hearts.
- Inception (2010)
Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” was one of the biggest films of 2010. Inception is unique with high-plots and thrilling vibe. But what truly makes the movie stand out is DiCaprio’s performance as Cobb.
- Django Unchained (2012)
Despite being the film’s main villain, DiCaprio’s Calvin is more of a supporting role rather than a main one. Though Leonardo didn’t receive any nomination for an Academy Award, his twisted performance as Calvin is not to be overshadowed.
- The Aviator (2004)
The movie is an epic based on the life of philanthropist and pilot Howard Hughes, “The Aviator”. Hughes’ obsessive-compulsive disorder is perfectly captured by DiCaprio. He was nominated for 11 Academy Awards and won five, including a Best Actress win for Blanchett, “The Aviator” is essential viewing for any DiCaprio or Scorsese fan.
- Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019)
“Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” is a unique blend of bloody mess and dark humor. The film’s biggest strength is the relationship between Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt). It is a highly detailed recreation of 1960s Los Angeles.
