A cultural phenomenon, Brian De Palma’s remake of the 1932 Howard Hawks film of the same name substitutes the crime world of 1920s Chicago with the drug trade of 1980s Miami, as violent, megalomaniac Cuban drug lord Tony Montana (Al Pacino) ascends the mob ranks. With a screenplay written by Oliver Stone, and iconic performances by Pacino, Michelle Pfeiffer, Steven Bauer, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Robert Loggia, Scarface
provides the defining portrait of gritty Miami street life and the drug culture of the 1980s. (1983, 170 mins)
