After getting a green card in exchange for assassinating a Cuban government official, Tony Montana (Al Pacino) stakes a claim on the drug trade in Miami.

  • 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. show more

  • A beautiful, at times poetic exercise in excess from Brian De Palma. show more

  • Scarface is a B- movie with singularly silly psychological pretensions: its neo-primitivism is to the complex moral cosmos of Francis Coppola's "Godfather" saga as Disney is to Dickens. [09 Dec 1983]
