Is Leonardo DiCaprio a figment of the collective Libertarian imagination?
Now, now, don’t misunderstand me. He’s good-looking, I’ll admit, with an impressive array of supermodel ex-girlfriends. But I’m talking about his filmography. (Post-pubescent, because Growing Pains.) In fact, I suspect Leonardo DiCaprio has done more to explain and explore the idea of capitalism than any other influential American artist.
Consider the titles for a moment: Gangs of New York, Revolutionary Road, Blood Diamond, J. Edgar, Catch Me If You Can, The Aviator, Django Unchained, The Departed, TITANIC, The Great Gatsby, and now The Wolf of Wall Street. A recurrent theme in these movies is simple, but ultimately American: Money – what does it do to people and what does it make people do?
