Starting with “Romeo+Juliet”, an adaption by Baz Luhrmann from the Shakespearean classic, the tragic saga becomes. In this 1996’s movie Romeo, played by DiCaprio, ingested poison when he came to know his lady love Juliet is faking her death. Poor guy!
James Cameron’s classic venture “Titanic”, tells a tale of an immortal love-meets-tragic end, as the giant ship sinks, marking a black day in history. Well, will it be too unfair to blame Rose, who by not giving Jack (DiCaprio) any space on a raft and let him freeze in the Atlantic? As usual we see DiCaprio die in this 1997 film.
Now, who can forget the character of Howard Hughes in “The Aviator”? This 2004 film has seen the aviator destined to be paranoid. The film depicts Dicaprio to meet death onscreen after his brain turned into mush.
“The Departed”, Martin Scorsese directorial of 2006, sees South Boston cop Billy Costigan (DiCaprio) going undercover to infiltrate the organization of gangland chief Frank Costello (Jack Nicholson). And what happens at last? The orientation with criminal underworld gets DiCaprio shot and offers him death.
A white South African mercenary, Danny Archer, DiCaprio’s unmatched portrayal in “Blood Diamond” also encountered a merciless doom as the 2006 movie sees him to get shot after getting in touch with wrong crowd, the smugglers.
The Clint Eastwood distinctive silver screen venture on 2011 “J Edgar” also depicts a tragic end. Here DiCaprio essays the character of an eponymous unhappy retired head of the FBI where he becomes miserable over the years and falls ill and dies.
Another Baz Luhrmann movie of 2013, famous “The Great Gatsby” will see DiCaprio to sacrifice again for his lady love. He took the fall for a murder she committed and that caused the poor Jay Gatsby to get shot and therefore met doom.
The script writers can show a little sympathy now onwards. We will love to see the man living onscreen. However “The Revenant” is coming to theatres on December 25, 2015 in the USA.
