The Aviator

Leonardo DiCaprio is brilliant once again in his portrayal of the reclusive and enigmatic Howard Hughes. I’ve never considered myself a fan of DiCaprio, but I must admit his talent is hard to dismiss. Strong performances in this film, and Catch Me If You Can immediately come to mind. I believe some artistic license was taken with the details in this movie — it has always been my impression that the eccentricities that Hughes became famous for did not begin manifesting themselves until late in his life, but this movie portrays him as being tormented by them in his early 40s. I’m not sure how accurate that is, historically, but the rest of the film is fantastic.
