Two documentaries with the imprimatur of Leonardo DiCaprio can be seen 
in New York City and likely in theaters around the country given his 
clout as one of Hollywood’s superstars. Both of the documentaries are 
timely and excellent. They also raise questions about the role of 
tinseltown progressives. With DiCaprio, George Clooney, Sean Penn, 
Angela Jolie, John Cusack and others not so well known picking up where 
Jane Fonda left off years ago, it is a good time to consider their role 
in social change. Since there is a natural and even reasonable tendency 
on the left to regard such personalities as superficial phonies, a close 
look at DiCaprio’s trajectory would be useful.
