This sprawling epic of bloodshed and excess, Brian De Palma's update of the classic 1932 crime drama by Howard Hawks, sparked controversy over its outrageous violence when released in 1983. Scarface is a wretched, fascinating car wreck of a movie, starring Al Pacino as a Cuban refugee who rises to the top of Miami's cocaine-driven underworld, only to fall hard into his own deadly trap of addiction and inevitable assassination. Scripted by Oliver Stone and running nearly three hours, it's the kind of film that can simultaneously disgust and amaze you (critic Pauline Kael wrote "this may be the only action picture that turns into an allegory of impotence"), with vivid supporting roles for Steven Bauer, Michelle Pfeiffer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and Robert Loggia. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

If this was the price for accepting Castro's castoffs into the US it was too high. Pacinos' (and that of his sidekick from Cuba) introduction to Miami is to witness the dismemberment and death of others with a chainsaw! Al Pacino does a great job of playing a Cuban hood, who, through his own drive and guts takes over a portion of the cocaine trade and eliminate his boss and then indulges in exorbitant spending of the illicit gains. The theme is to take from others but to brook no interference with his own wants. Al Pacino plays the role of a domineering cocaine merchant convincingly. When he steals his boss's girl, marries her and maltreats her, even she leaves him. Even his faithful mother (whom he hasn't bothered to contact on the flimsy excuse that he wanted to keep her and his blossoming younger sister safe) disowns him and tries to keep his sister from his influence and money. The saddest piece occurs when, he has charged his buddy with minding the store in Bolivia, he finds him with his sister - he does not stop to discover that they have exciting news for him - they are married!. He guns his buddy down as he opens the door.
Pacino cuts a deal for cocaine supply with a Bolivian drug lord. In exchange he is to facilitate the bomb murder of a diplomat trying to stop the trade by some sort of legalization. Pacino refuse the facilitation because the diplomat's wife and children are in the set-up car.
All in all this is an excellent portrayal of the seamy life in the cocaine trade. There follows a bloody invasion of the South Americans in which Pacino dies in a hail of bullets. He dies with his his face in cocaine and later his body riddled with bullets. I don't normally tell the story but this is a ghastly tale which the tender of heart should stay away from unless they want to be suffer nightmares!n
Very good movie. If you like Al Pacino, if you liked The Godfather Trilogy or if you simply like action movies, you'll love Scarface. This movie was, for me, a very good discovery!
