I read Erin Nolan's "Leonardo DiCaprio: Top Five/Bottom Five" at (yes, that's me over there as the first commenter) and I started thinking about how a top ten Leonardo DiCaprio films may be a good list to make, and one I could hammer out relatively quick.

You may be thinking, "Just throw two you think are just okay at the bottom and call it good." Negative, I don't do that. There's no chance I am throwing The Man in the Iron Mask, Romeo + Juliet, The Basketball Diaries or The Quick and the Dead on any list of mine just to fill space. Sorry, those films aren't good enough (or at all) and to put them on a top ten list would be to recognize them as such, »

If I have a role for them, I will bring them in. And if I don't, in all honesty, I'm not going to call. Because everybody feels that they're right for the role." For example, Kaufman recalls one actor who went to remarkable lengths to attract her attention, filming himself performing lines from the script he was auditioning for, »
