The world is yours...
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.
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…
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!
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 or flashbacks from Godfather 2?
THE WORLD IS YOURS...
Um simples refugiado cubano consegue criar um império de droga, este filme fala sobre DINHEIRO, DROGA, MULHERES e COMO VIVER A VIDA, excelente!
"All I have in this world is my balls and my word and I don't break them for no one" - Tony Montana
TV, con Ines
This film has gained cult classic status but I'm not sure why. The story is pretty interesting, but it's made less so by Pacino's one-dimensional performance. It's obvious that the film isn't the most realistic, but my complaint is that there isn't even a semblance of realism.
The film bashes you over the head with its message when it chooses to convey a message, but most of the time De Palma is content with just running the camera while Pacino makes a fool of himself. This is where Al Pacino stopped being an actor and started becoming just a parody of himself. There would be no going back after this movie.
While I've been negative about it, it's not terrible. Michelle Pfeiffer is pretty good and there's some slick direction, but that's about it. There isn't enough good in this movie to make up for its nearly 3 hour runtime.
He's Tony fucking Montana! He's the fucking premier gangster of all fucking time! He fucking runs his bitch! Pacino fucking OWNS this role! He's the fucking KING! You don't fuck with him! He'll fuck you up! He's the fucking KING! Fucking amazing film, man.....so fucking good.......fuck......
Sorry, aber diesen Film konnte ich nicht genießen. Die Netflix Version ist ab 18 und geht 154min. und trotzdem schien sie stark geschnitten!!!???
Ich denke, ohne diese Schnitte wäre dieser Film um einiges besser gewesen. Es ist viel passiert in diesem Film und ich würde ihn gerne mal in der normalen Fassung sehen.
With the announcement of the re-remake of Scarface, I figured I would use this review as a chance to voice how I feel about the newest interpretation of gangster violence and illegal substances with the same name.
I'm excited as hell for the reboot. Yeah, maybe I'm the only person - but I think this is a great idea. Could it turn out to be shit? Of course! But it has a solid chance. The '83 Scarface was pretty much panned when it came out, but now we view it as a terrific film.
That's what probably will happen again, honestly. I like the idea of a modern version of Scarface - so long as it's its own story. Make…
We don't need another Scarface
-All about money, and how Tony Montana substitutes it for care and status. He's obsessed, it's all he talks about.
-The last third, showcasing the fall of Tony, is tremendous. When he kills Manny for marrying his sister (which DePalma draws out an incestous relationship), the moment is shockingly told in muffled audio and close ups.
-The first third is actually very funny and warm, with Tony proving to be an endearing character. It makes his fall all the more engrossing to watch.
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
