Scarface £2.49 @ CD-WOW Delivered

Brian De Palma's blood-and-sun-drenched saga of a Cuban deportee's rise to the top of Miami's cocaine business has become something of a popular classic since its release; it's been referenced in rap songs and subsequent gangster movies and quoted the world over. Despite this lovefest with the dialogue, the film's brutal violence and lack of positive characters still make it controversial and disliked by certain critics. Al Pacino stars as Tony Montana, whose intelligence, guts, and ambition help him skyrocket from dishwasher to the top of a criminal empire but whose eventual paranoia and incestuous desire for his kid sister (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio) prove his undoing. Michelle Pfeiffer plays Tony's neglected coke-addicted trophy wife, and Steven Bauer is his concerned friend. F. Murray Abraham, Robert Loggia, and Paul Shenar are some of Tony's sleazy business partners and potential killers. Oliver Stone wrote the expletive-packed screenplay, based on Howard Hawks's 1932 version--which was ostensibly about Al Capone and starred Paul Muni and George Raft. The synth-heavy Giorgio Moroder score expertly evokes the drug-fueled decadence of 1980s Miami, and De Palma provides several of his elaborate set pieces, including a horrific showstopper in a motel room with a chain saw.

Must have! Also waiting for the blu ray!
#5
Push it to the limit!!!

A must see film, get it if you haven't seen it in a while, or (god forbid) haven't ever seen it.

I wander what the Blu-Ray release will end up looking like? I didn't realise they were working on one. Hopefully they can clean it up a bit and bring out more 80's colour!

Apart from Pacino's acting the film itself , depended heavily on the swearing and violence spurned by the advent of gory horror films at the time, which was not really used in a mainstream film until now with big names behind the production.

The performance of the supporting actors was mediocre, which a cheesy storytelling, especially the love interest, of Tony Montana sister.

The cult status of this film has been exasperated by using Tony Montana an iconic anti hero on predominately rap culture and exaggerated views by an age bracket between 16 to 25 year olds and will remain so as the status overrides the quality of the film.

I'd agree totally with that. You certainly don't often hear many people say something like Scarface is my favourite film and Citizen Kane's my next.

There's only two or three decent actors in Scarface. Pacino and the two gangster bosses that he works for. It's not that it's a bad film. It came out in the 80's which is a bit of a wasteland for good films and then it struck a chord for a certain age range of the time.
