An Oscar for Leonardo DiCaprio in The Wolf of Wall Street

RHdGoLDdvYlljTP-556x313-noPad

Often called “the best actor of his generation”, he has proven worthy of this title time and again, including this past year, with his excellent work in Django Unchained and The Great Gatsby. In The Wolf of Wall Street, however, he reached a whole new level of acting, proving capable of taking down herds of hungry traders by the sheer power of his predatory charisma, before going into a 10 minutes long trance to deliver an insane physical performance in the following scene. Surely, his future is among the brightest in Hollywood, but this particular film will be remembered as a highlight of his career, the one time when he transcended the boundaries of his role and sprang to life like none other in front of the camera.

We assure you that we have the utmost respect for the other actors who will most likely be nominated. Yet be it Tom Hanks in Captain Phillips, Chiwetei Ejiofor in 12 Years a Slave, Christian Bale in American Hustle, or Idris Elba in Mandela, none of them have come close to competing with DiCaprio’s possessed performance. Rest assured these very same actors would agree on the quality of his work in this role, which he brilliantly used to illustrate the decadence of a system long glorified by a part on the United States’ society before it literally blew up in their faces.
