    The first time I watched this film was at the beginning of my quest to learn the art. I was fool-hearty and had not yet realized how genius Brian De Palma is. I chalked it up as just another overrated film perpetuated by dude-bros so they could hang the poster on their wall.

    I was wrong.

    This is cinematic purity. One of the greatest crime films of all time. That's why it lives on.

    Some movies grow with you, whilst others fade away. This is the latter.

    Once upon a time, in the latter years of high school, Scarface was seriously challenging to be my favourite film, and I had a "say hello to my little friend" memorabilia piece hanging on my bedroom wall. It was just a cool, good time movie.

    I remember rewatching this last about 5 years ago, and not being too impressed. The magic was already fading. Unfortunately, I regard…

    "Me, I want what's coming to me." "What's coming to you?" "The world, Chico, and everything in it."

    -- Tony Montana in "Scarface"

    Brian De Palma's "Scarface" rises or falls with Al Pacino's performance, which is aggressive, over the top, teeth-gnashing, arm-waving, cocaine-snorting, scenery chewing -- and brilliant, some say, while others find it unforgivably flamboyant. What were Pacino's detractors hoping for? Something internal and realistic? Low key? The Tony Montana character is above all a performance artist, a man…

    Controversial when it was released for its heavy violence and drug use but has since gone on to be a classic. I thought it was entertaining and it kept me interested for its near 3 hour running time. But the story and characters needed work with Al Pacino essentially holding the film together with his intriguing (to say the least) Cuban accent. Its a remake itself of a film in the 30s but there's plenty of scope in this remake for another reimagining so I'm not surprised to see that work on a new version is well under way.

    Based on Rockstar's Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Scarface tells the rise and fall of cocaine baron Tony Montana (Pacino) and makes us all wish we were old enough to live through the 80s.

    ‘Say hello to my little friend!’

    ‘Scarface’ is considered a classic amongst many a film goer, it has a great cultural impact and is a huge influence to the mob film genre. Nonetheless when I watched it I wasn’t really blown away by its content, to be honest I found it boring. Now maybe I am looking at this film retrospectively, I am so used to the specific tropes and themes used in the film that it seems cliché now,…

    Yeah, this movie spawned the careers of dozens of terrible gangsta rappers who think they're so tough cuz they're from da streetz yo! Still, Scarface is a well directed crime epic with iconic moments and performances. We just don't get characters like Tony Montana anymore in the world of cinema.
