A classic of the ’80s.

Plot, Synopsis

Tony Montana es un emigrante cubano con poco amor por su país y mucho por el 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 Tonys neglected coke-addicted trophy wife, and Steven Bauer is his concerned friend. F. Murray Abraham, Robert Loggia, and Paul Shenar are some of Tonys sleazy business partners and potential killers. (Filmaffiniy)

Movie Reviews

“‘Scarface’ is one of those special movies, like ‘The Godfather’, that is willing to take a flawed, evil man and allow him to be human. (…) Rating: ???? (out of four)” Roger Ebert: Chicago Sun-Times

“‘Scarface’ has the impressive filmmaking triumvirate of De Palma, Stone, and Pacino (…) Although the film depicts a nightmarish world, it’s also very funny (…) Rating: ???? (out of 4)” Slant

“The movie reduces a truly grave problem, the alarming success of Miami’s drug peddlers (…) [Montana] is just a cartoon monster, an excuse for De Palma to show off his obvious talent for staging shoot-outs.” Kathleen Carroll: New York Daily News
