    32 years on from its original cinematic release, some would consider Scarface to be a misunderstood masterpiece of its time, getting a critically negative response and amongst individuals within the film industry also (allegedly Dustin Hoffman fell asleep during it, writers John Irving and Kurt Vonnegut allegedly stormed out....however Martin Scorsese told Steven Bauer that 'You guys are great – but be prepared, because they're going to hate it in Hollywood... because it's about them.') yet over the decades it…

    Brian De Palma dedicates this 1983 feature to Howard Hawks and Ben Hecht, authors of the 1932 original, though I doubt they would find much honor in his gory inflation of their crisp, 90-minute comic nightmare into a lumbering, self-important, arrhythmic downer of nearly three hours. It was De Palma's first attempt at a "serious" film, and he steeled himself for the task by reading up on the literature—great undigested hunks of Robert Warshow's "The Gangster as Tragic Hero" are…

    Overrated. Overlong. Pretty dumb.

    Darkly hilarious, brimming with excess and ending in a cascade of bullets, Scarface is as bloody and ridiculous as you’d expect for a film all about just how far one man can get on a sense of entitlement and stubbornness. The notion that Tony Montana is anything other than a confident idiot is laughable, but it’s perhaps worth noting just how much loyalty and lunacy he’s able to inspire even if he never has any semblance of a plan.

    And…

    De Palma is never one to be afraid of hamming up a good movie. So far, from what I've seen, this has never been a weakness of his, especially not in the case of Scarface. Cornball gangster flick, over the top, quickest 3 hours at the cinema.

    As with plenty of other crime films, greed will always be one's undoing.

    Poco lo que hay que decir sobre esta obra maestra. Tony Montana es un personaje que a pesar de su condición de criminal, logra que uno sienta toda clase de emociones tanto en sus peores como mejores momentos. Brian De Palma nos entrega un oscuro retrato del mundo criminal de la Miami ochentera armonizado con ese fantástico soundtrack de synthpop. Lo ha demostrado Scarface y un montón de películas arthouse action contemporáneas: el synth y la violencia van de la…
