Leonardo DiCaprio Goes Green in ‘The 11th Hour’

leo.jpgLeonardo DiCaprio is mad as hell, and he’s not going to take it anymore! It looks like everybody’s new favourite actor has been bitten by the activist bug and is now following in Al Gore’s footsteps with his new film ‘The 11th Hour’. Not to be confused with Spike Lee’s ‘The 25th Hour’, or Stephen Daldry’s ‘The Hours’, or Steven Spielberg’s ‘1941’, ‘The 11th Hour’ is a new documentary produced by Leo and directed by Leila Conners Petersen and Nadia Conners, and tackles the issue of global warming. It’s nice to see someone finally giving this topic some much needed attention. Oh wait, EVERYBODY is giving this topic some much needed attention. So what seperates this film from everything else? Well aside from Leo, it features interviews with over 50 of the world’s leading scientists. I must admit that the statistics will somehow feel much more credible coming from the collective mouth of the scientific community rather then the collective mouth of Al Gore. But what’s Leo’s deal? Why the sudden interest in global warming? Well, perhaps the iceberg that offed him in Titanic had broken off from the Arctic shelf?
