J. E. Hoover Trailer
Probably Leo's best performance ever and perhaps Eastwood's best work too. DeCaprio is the best actor of his generation and is only going to get better as he ages. He, like Daniel Day Lewis and Johnny Depp, has extraordinary screen presence, but, unlike these two, DeCaprio's will become even more powerful, I predict, with age. (Who watched Bogey in his 30s? We adored him in his 40s and 50s.) ) Lewis is second to Leo in intensity, and Depp is second in range. Pitt, Clooney, Norton, and all the Ryans, etc. are all second tier compared to these three. So sayeth a former film producer.
