actor: Leonardo DiCaprio

Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood

The Synopsis: A faded television actor and his stunt double strive to achieve fame and success in the film industry during the final years of Hollywood's Golden Age in 1969 Los Angeles. The Review: If there's such a thing as a kindler, gentler Quentin Tarantino, his work is on display for much of [...]

The Revenant

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R, PG-13 and PG-13 Horror rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative [...]

The Wolf of Wall Street

Wow! Where do I start? The word "decadence" comes to mind! This film has a lot of content in it. It has more language in it than any movie I have ever screened or written about. The same with the sex content. It features constant sexual scenes, or references to sex, strip club scenes; full front [...]

The Great Gatsby (2013)

This movie is made in the spirit of the grand old epics such as "Gone with the Wind". From the sweeping views of New York City, grand viewpoints from the homes of the rich, to the opulence and finery of the wealthy, this film is big with a capital B. It is well acted with the likes of Leonardo [...]

J Edgar

He also relied heavily on his Assistant Director Clyde Tolson (Armie Hammer), sharing lunches and dinners and attending [...]

Inception

Leonardo Dicaprio plays an expert in dream extraction in this film, a man who enters people's dreams and captures their secrets. The plot is intriguing and the story is executed with a lot of violence with surprisingly little blood. Although many of the characters who are shot are "dream" [...]

Shutter Island

"Shutter Island" is a film loaded with atmosphere, from the pelting rain against the windows, the stormy seas, the dark corridors of the mental institute, to the lighthouse which is surrounded by grey skies and water washing up on the jagged rocks which surround it. There is even a cemetery scene [...]

Revolutionary Road

The talent in this film becomes obvious by simply watching it. Both DiCaprio and Winslet breathe life into their characters, the married (but not necessarily happily) Frank and April Wheeler. This film features the theme of simply surviving and working for a paycheck while grappling with the [...]

Body of Lies

Leonardo DiCaprio does an excellent job in portraying CIA agent Roger Ferris, who discovers a lead on a terrorist authority figure who is working out of Jordan. Ferris is in a position in which he has to be extremely cautious regarding who he trusts. DiCaprio plays the complexities well, as he is [...]
