1983 ***** 170 mins.
Like it or not, there is no denying the huge impact that Brian De Palma's Scarface has had on the world. Very loosely based on a film from 1932,
Al Pacino stars as Tony Montana. Fresh off the boat from Cuba, Tony rises to power in the U.S. with the help of a little thing called cocaine. This film is a very, very fun experience, and worth revisiting over and over again. Every time I watch it, I remember why I loved it so much growing up, and I still love it. The performances are iconic, the music is brilliant, the direction and visual style of the film is memorable and exclusive to this wonderful action epic.
Original theatrical aspect ratio: 2.35:1 (Panavision)
Rated R for language, violence, gore, drug use, and some sexuality/nudity.
Al Pacino + Stephen Bauer + Michelle Pfeiffer + Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio + Robert Loggia + F. Murray Abraham
