Every Leonardo DiCaprio Performance In A Martin Scorsese Movie, Ranked

You know, there was a time when I believed that Leonardo DiCaprio wasn’t a good actor, or at least, I thought he was overrated. In all honesty, I thought that DiCaprio was just in some really good films, and that’s what led people to believe that he was good. But then, I started seeing him in Martin Scorsese movies, and that changed my opinion entirely. Yes, the five Martin Scorsese movies starring DiCaprio are all pretty good, but the truth is, they wouldn’t be nearly as good if Leonardo DiCaprio wasn’t in them, and I think that says a lot about the heavily praised actor.

Now, I already talked about the best Martin Scorsese/Robert De Niro collaborations, so, I wanted to do the same for Leonardo DiCaprio. Granted, the history between DiCaprio and Scorsese doesn’t go all the way back to the ‘70s, like it does for Scorsese and De Niro, but for a time, it felt like DiCaprio truly was Scorsese’s new muse. Interestingly, Scorsese’s next project, Killers of the Flower Moon, will feature both Leonardo DiCaprio AND Robert De Niro, so it’s really the best of both worlds. So, without further ado, here are the best Leonardo DiCaprio performances in Martin Scorsese films, ranked.

Oh, and some major spoilers up ahead.
