Tony Montana is an exiled Cuban criminal who goes to work for Miami drug lord Robert Loggia. Montana rises to the top of Florida's crime chain, appropriating Loggia's cokehead mistress in the process.
Two powerhouses Brian DePalma and Oliver Stone made history when they created the ultimate iconic film legend in the form of Tony Montana (Al Pacino)!
The rise and fall of Tony Montana is the stuff of legends! Larger than life figure whose the epitome of all things machismo! One of the most memorable, most quoted and most emulated figures of cinema history!
Highly recommended to those whom appreciate the Gangster/Mobster genre!
Written by Oliver Stone, directed by Brian De Palma & starring Al Pacino in the most vicious role of his career, Scarface is widely considered as a defining classic of its genre & also works as one fascinating character study but what single-handedly elevates this crime drama to a certain level of greatness is Pacino's unforgettable rendition of his character, Tony Montana.
A remake of the 1932 film of the same name, Scarface tells the story of Tony Montana; a Cuban immigrant who arrives in 1980s America with nothing but then rapidly rises to become a powerful drug lord. Extremely protective of his younger sister, disowned by his mother & driven by his greed for more power, the plot covers his journey to…
You've heard the saying "The face that launched a thousand ships"?
Well this is the movie that launched the small time weed-dealing careers of thousands of highschool gangsters with scarface posters on their bedroom walls in their parent's houses.
Brian De Palma's Scarface is unquestionably one of the great gangster epics, mainly because of its incredible vibrancy and hyper realism in regards to both the style and the main character tapestry. The feeling of the film is simply suffocating, clashing sound and image in a concussive fashion that bears a shocking resemblance to a train-wreck. In a good way of course. Yet, under all the neon and the constant blaring of a wonderful Giorgio Moroder soundtrack is a character study loaded with depth and crystal-clear focus.
De Palma's direction in particular is amazingly concise. In the infamous "hotel-room sequence", the tension is slowly cranked up to 11, and it works as a result of De Palma's tightly wound timing.…
Scarface over the last thirty years has attained cult status as a crime classic. Directed by Brian De Palma with a blood-soaked screenplay courtesy of Oliver Stone, Scarface is not for the fainthearted. Featuring a tour de force of maniacal menace from Al Pacino this doesn't paint Cubans in a very flattering light and copped flak from ex-pats living in the US. for its portrayal of their countrymen. Drug-fueled and violent, the birth of Tony Montana and Pacino's second most iconic character is sensational.
It's 1980 and Cuban refugee Tony Montana is prepared to do anything to rise through the criminal ranks and make a name for himself. Cue chainsaws, machine guns, and copious amounts of cocaine that turn little…
Oliver Stone and Brian De Palma came together to make what is now considered a classic by many of the gangster genre, combining Oliver Stone's somewhat B-movie script with endlessly quotable dialogue with De Palma's elegant and fast paced directing.
It all starts with a mini-documentary of the Mariel boatlift accompanied by an amazing deep soundtrack and one of the cuban refugees is Tony Montana (Al Pacino) being interrogated and making jokes the whole time, he's a ballsy guy and he's ambitious. He only cares for his best friend Manny (Steven Bauer), with whom he shares his ambitions, and his sister, Gina (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio), apart from that he doesn't feel for anyone else and will stop at nothing to…
Scarface is a classic. Al Pacino being Tony Montana, a man who arrives from Cuba to the USA searching for oportunities. He founds them, but in the illegal business of the drugs. A movie with scenes you'll never forget, action; fear; emotions. A must watch.
Brian De Palma elevates an abysmal, full of exposition and superficial politics screenplay by Oliver Stone into a pop art filmic installation, combining kitsch costumes and sets with Moroder 's electronic score and making full use of a Pacino on steroids. Pacino's Tony Montana is one of the weirdest performances in cinematic history, one that you admire and loathe almost simultaneously.
"Scarface" is undoubtedly rewatchable, but if you're searching for a masterful De Palma/Pacino collaboration, look no further than "Carlito's Way".
The film felt somewhat disjointed and disconnected. Its style is wonderfully brave and bold, but the tones it attempts to strike are often too conflicting to cope within its fairly familiar narritive.
Say hello to my little friend Guns coke and excitement what more can you want ?
Got to see it, at least once
Lighten up, it's a satire.
that intro theme tho B)
Relentlessly enjoyable with every viewing, this satiral take on greed, wealth, power and money falls flat in a few areas...however this is still the quintessential popcorn movie.
Al Pacino shines in arguably the best performance of his career. He plays the young Cuban man rising to power to become one of the most powerful gangsters in South Florida. Brian de Palma was the perfect director for this film as he creates a dark, yet fun and satisfying mood for this gangster film. Over anything else in this film the best part has to be the script. Oliver Stone, a legend himself kept you so intrigued by his dialogue that felt like normal conversations that anyone would have. SCARFACE being a perfect film receives a...
