Tony Montana will get under your skin, will get into your head, and before you know it you'll be talking like him, quoting lines from the movie, and watching it over and over. As gangster movies go, it's probably number three behind The Godfather, and Godfather II. And it's no coincidence that Al Pacino is in all three. Al Pacino does so many things to bring Tony Montana to life; but his most jarring piece of acting comes during the famous chainsaw scene, in his wordless closeup. His facial expression speaks volumes as Tony is stripped of his strut to reveal naked emotion. Of course, Al Pacino isn't the only great contributor. Brian DePalma is a terrific director, Oliver Stone is a great screenwriter (and director, but not here); Steven Bauer, F. Murray Abraham, Robert Loggia, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and Michelle Pfeiffer are no slouches as performers. In retrospect, it seems that it would take an awful lot to make this movie go wrong; but because everyone was at the top of their game, Scarface has become a masterpiece.

Scarface is without a doubt a classic film loaded with memorable lines and gunfight scenes. Not one person I know watched this and didn't love it. The only real thing I regret is just now seeing it. As far as the story goes, Fidel Castro has sent over Cuban immigrants to the U.S., with most of these being political refugees. And two of those immigrants are Tony Montana and his partner Manny Ray. In a camp where the immigrants were being held, Tony stabs a man who was once near the top of Castro's regime, and he enjoyed doing so because of some of the things this man did to the people in Cuba. So by virtue of his doing this, Tony and Frank get green cards and jobs in Miami.
Scarface represents the American dream to have it all, and he does come to have it all when he works his way up in the cocaine business.One of the best but also brutal scenes takes place when Tony and his partner are sent to make a pickup that goes wrong. Another guy that goes in with Tony gets chainsawed in the bathtub, which is brutal now but must have been much more so in its 1983 release.But eventually he works his way up, and his boss tries to off him, and this led to Tony taking over Frank(his boss), killing him and taking over the empire. From the beginning Tony viewed him as a weak man whose time was running out.He takes Franks former wife Elvira(played by Michelle Pfeiffer)and marries her.So at this point he had it all, the house, the wife, the money, everything a man could want in life.
I think another point brought out in the movie is that staying on top is harder than getting there, and this is evident when Tony becomes addicted to the cocaine. It along with paranoia contributed to his gradual seperation from everyone around him, causing him to hurt those in his way.

Director Brian DePalma's Scarface released in December of 1983 was a remake of the 1932 gangster classic that starred Paul Muni. Al Pacino gives a superb performance (including his much imitated Cuban accent) as Cuban refugee turned cocaine king of Miami Tony Montana. He comes to Miami, Florida with his best friend Manny Ray (Steven Bauer) and goes on to become the cocaine king of Florida. Once he starts selling the coke, he gets hooked on the stuff and alienates those who get in his way. Robert Loggia was impressive as Frank, one of Tony's partners whom eventually goes by the wayside as well as Frank's and eventually Tony's wife Elvira(played by Michelle Pfeiffer whom would go on to huge success as an actress of her own right) when she leaves him after a confrontation and of course his sister Gina(played by Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio whom would go on to play Tom Cruise's girlfriend in The Color of Money). Al's portrayal of Montana is a classic role. I know this is a drama but some of the quotes he came back with are akin to stand up comedy which will leave you in stitches. He refers to bad people as cockroaches, classic. This movie has lots of usage of the f word and profanities and violence but it beats any kind of film, like those lame Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill movies. This movie is one of my Top 5 movies of all time and is Hugely Recommended!

But the merit of de Palma is the updating, from booze market in Chicago, to drugs market in Florida, which should have sent some message to the people pretending to be 'in charge'. The sad thing is not many politicitians have yet understood (of course, I'm not talking about the ones who get their cut) that the 'Prohibition' Laws only succeeded in creating the Mafia economical power, and that anything "forbidden" has a very strong appeal for many who would not care very much for something they could find in Wal'Mart; and, even if they still wanted it then, freer and cheaper availability would make life a lot safer for those risking to be mugged and/or killed so they can help junkies to get cash for their dose: just ask people in Holland (where life is not more depraved than in Miami, but much safer).
For those who like History, 18th Amendment started not long before Mr. W. H. Hays took office in Hollywood, but finished much sooner: there was sure no shortage of stupidity in the ruling class at the time, and the results of their malfeasences are still effective.
