Leo re-teams with director Martin Scorsese once again in Shutter Island, a psychological thriller based on the Dennis Lehane novel. This is the fourth collaboration between the two, and based on the reviews and the box office, it could be their most profitable yet. Here, too, are 15 more Leo movies that hit the mark...
By John Halecky
This Boy’s Life (1993)
In one of his first big-screen roles, Leo played the stepson to an abusive Robert DeNiro in this coming-of-age biopic based on the book by Tobias Wolff. Not too shabby company for one of his first movie roles...
What’s Eating Gilbert Grape (1993)
Nominated for his first Oscar, Leo beautifully took on the role of a boy with severe autism being taken care of by his older brother played by Johnny Depp.
The Quick and the Dead (1995)
Long before he took on Spider-Man, Sam Raimi directed Leo in the old west as a gun-slinging cowboy who goes to toe to toe - and then some - with Sharon Stone.
The Basketball Diaries (1995)
Leo plays aspiring high school basketball star Jim Carroll in this true story about the teen's downward spiral into drug addiction on the tough streets of New York.
Romeo and Juliet (1996)
Baz Luhrman's modern update to Shakespeare's classic starred Leo as Romeo (who else?!) and Claire Danes as his Juliet. Although set in the modern-day city of Verona Beach, it still retains the original dialogue.
"I'm the king of the world!" Leo sure was after he co-starred alongside Kate Winslet in director James Cameron's epic tale of the 'unsinkable' Titanic.
The Beach (2000)
In his follow up to the hugely successful Titanic, Leo frolicked around shirtless most of the time in Thailand looking for the perfect beach in this island paradise. Not a bad job if you can get it!
Gangs of New York (2002)
In his first collaboration with director Martin Scorsese, Leo takes on the lead role of a tough, street-wise hustler in 1863 New York who's trying to avenge his father's death by going after his killer, Bill 'The Butcher' played by Daniel Day-Lewis.
Catch Me If You Can (2002)
Steven Spielberg directed Leo in this true story as Frank Abagnale Jr., who, before his 19th birthday, cashed in more than $2.5 million in fraudulent checks while posing as an airline pilot, a doctor and an attorney.
The Aviator (2004)
Leo took on the role of the larger-than-life Howard Hughes in this biopic directed by Martin Scorsese. It earned the actor his second Oscar nomination.
The Departed (2006)
Martin Scorsese finally won his well deserved directing Oscar for this Best Picture-winning crime drama starring Leo as an undercover cop who infiltrates the Irish mafia in Boston.
Blood Diamond (2006)
Earning his third Oscar nomination, Leo mastered an African accent playing an ex-mercenary smuggler who joins forces with a mende fisherman, played by Djimon Hounsou, in search of a rare pink diamond in civil war-torn Sierra Leone in 1999.
Body of Lies (2008)
Sharing the screen with Russell Crowe in this Ridley Scott directed action thriller, Leo plays a CIA operative in the Middle East who gets caught up in deception, lies and a double-cross.
Revolutionary Road (2008)
Reuniting with Titanic co-star Kate Winslet, Leo and Kate play a young couple who struggle to come to terms with their personal problems while trying to raise their two children in 1950's Connecticut suburbia.
Ok, so we haven't seen it yet, and don't know much about the story, but with writer/director Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Memento) behind the lens, and Leo starring, we're sure it will be a mind-bending, fascinating ride.
