Leonardo di Caprio

Watching “The Aviator” tonight, it occurred to me that what DiCaprio conveys—and it is his eminently watchable, tragic attraction for us—is the essential pointlessness and cheapness of what we desire, while depicting its desirableness in all its short-term glory.

I used to loathe him, but please consider the fineness of his work in The Aviator, The Departed and Blood Diamond. Very good.
