I was impossible not to respect Leonardo DiCaprio's intense, go-for-broke performances as loose-cannon tupes in This Boy's Life and What's Eating Gilbert Grape, which he performed at age 16 and 17 or something like that. But they were "kid" performances. Next came a pulp western, The Quick and the Dead ('95), which, performed at age 19, showcased his first teenager performance. Alas, the movie wasn't so hot.
