    El resultado del momento dulce no, dulcísimo, de tres grandes: De Palma, Stone y Pacino.

    ★★★★½ Added by johannvazquez

    This movie was directed by Brian De Palma, and the catching story, “Scarface”, was written by Oliver Stone. This story started when Fidel Castro opened the harbor at Mariel Cuba, sending about 125,000 Cuban refugees to reunite with their relatives in the United States. Among all these refugees, there is one who wants to conquer the world and follow the “American dream” and do anything it takes to achieve it. He finds himself with his friend Manny at a refugee…

    Scarface: De Palma's excessive, hyperrealistic, self-indulgent, glorified classic.

    I don't trust a movie without a "push it to the limit" montage.

    This film is such a classic of a classic. Despite the length I could watch this repeatedly.

    Prior to attending a live Q&A with Al Pacino in London toward the back end of May this year, I spent a week or so beforehand catching up on some of his classics that I had otherwise not yet gotten around to seeing. First on the list was Brian De Palma and Oliver Stone's 1983 movie about the rise of a fictional Cuban drug lord, the iconic Tony Montana.

    Plenty of people have tried to warn me off it in…

    Ich könnte mich jetzt einfach hinstellen, laut "Meisterwerk Motherfucker!" schreien, das imaginäre Mikrofon droppen und von der noch imaginäreren Bühne latschen, aber das wäre doch etwas zu einfach.

    Denn auch wenn wir es hier sicherlich mit einem Klassiker zu tun haben, liegt das eigentlich nur an der großen Al Pacino Show, der hier einfach eine absolut fantastische Leistung abliefert. Das überrascht zwar nicht wirklich, übertüncht aber doch, dass der Film so ein bis zwei kleine Längen aufzuweisen hat, die aber…

    Film 383 of my 2015 500 Film Challenge

    It may have been slated by critics on its initial release due to the excessive violence, swearing and length. I don't want to sound childish, but these critics are whiny little pussies.

    Scarface is a powerhouse production from the get go. A 3 hour engrossing crime-epic about the rise and fall of Tony Montana. Led by Al Pacino's fully commited and engaging performance that demanded attention and awards, this is easily his…

    A masterpiece, epic character piece on the rise and fall of Notorious Drug Lord, Tony Montana. Absolutely gripping and powerful in performances, the exciting visuals and spectacular story that focuses on the monstrous ideas of greed, corruption and uncontrollable power.

    Al Pacino delivers his best performance as Tony Montana, a charismatic, egocentric, determined and shattered monster who goes above and beyond to prove to everyone he is more than just an immigrant from Cuba. There are stellar performances across the…
