21. 'Total Eclipse' (1995)
Agnieszka Holland's literary epic about the tempestuous, forbidden affair between 19th century poets Paul Verlaine (David Thewlis) and Arthur Rimbaud (DiCaprio) barely got released back in its day – in part because of its then-scandalous subject matter, including some fairly intense sex between the two leads, but also because, well, it's not very good. DiCaprio seems purposefully miscast as an all-too-modern young punk version of the legendary live-fast-die-young poet who comes into Verlaine's life, seduces him, and disrupts his mentor/lover's marriage. Instead of conveying the brazen genius of these men, however, it mostly conveys their obnoxiousness.
