TIL Leonardo DiCaprio turns down blockbusters in order to work with indie filmmakers like Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorcese and Chistopher Nolan.

I think that's really cool. Does anyone else respect him a lot?

Then 2000 comments about how he's never won an Oscar, not even for Django or Inception, DAE think he'd be perfect for *insert obscure marvel character here,* was thinking the same thing, dumb inception joke that keeps going, I kind of like that he only works with obscure directors, him and Depp will never sell out, AMA request: Leo DiCaprio.

Leo's sellin' wolf tickets alright.

EDIT: Awesome! Glad to see I'm not the only one who appreciates the thespian he is!

EDIT 2: Omg! Front page! This is seriously the best day of my life! THANK YOU!!!

EDIT 3: I just wanted to say thanks again for all the comments! Keep 'em coming!' Best. Community. Ever!

EDIT 4: Let's keep the comments about Depp in this thread too. Don't use the other one that was created. It'll be easier for people just getting here to read everything if we just use this one.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Wish I was done the way Scorsese is done.
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

This is actually the first time Leo hasn't felt miscast in a Scorsese movie.

The Departed might not be deep, but for me it's a far better viewing experience than Casino anyway.

Hey man, Casino is great.

You know nothing, Garam.

Casino is Scorsese's last masterpiece.

Definitely think DiCaprio is overrated and has a low ceiling for acting potential, but I also think he's the reason a lot of Scorsese films have been financed in the last decade. Scorsese has been able to steadily work without really changing his interests or having to do a blockbuster-style flick. Not many other filmmakers can say the same. I don't think any other filmmaker who has a low grade box office return history like Scorsese has can say the same in this climate. For better or worse, DiCaprio probably has allowed Scorsese to make movies he wants to make.

Has Scorsese the filmmaker changed? Of course, but he was changing out of his hard nose drama shoes even in the 1970s and moving more toward a Howard Hawks everyman studio type of filmmaking. I just wish he would do more films that at least had the interest and ambition of Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, or Last Temptation of Christ. Silence is so appealing because it's a project we know is in that ballpark and Scorsese is legitimately passionate about but if it weren't for that project, I think he would roll with a dozen type of Departed flicks because they're more accessible to make.

your arguments against casino and pro defarted are uninformed.

are you seriously telling me you've seen every film he's made and you legitimately think his 2000+ output is up to par?

do you feel the same way about woody allen? they are comparable almost exactly.

anyone who praises scorsese's 2000+ films beyond anything he did in the 90s is a cinematic idiot.

shit, even the last shot of Age of Innocence is a million times better than anything he's done in the last 14 years. your upvoters are idiots too,.

im kind of just reiterating what i said in the chat but:
scorsese really did pull a woody allen, his transition to what he does now wasnt necessarily horrible but its definitely nothing close to his earlier work. his bringing out the dead stage, which he's still in is pretty disappointing in comparison.
