A true classic film

I rewatched this movie recently on Netflix, and I have to say, I forgot how much I love this movie. Al Pacino's character, even with the bad Cuban accent is hilarious. His good-looking partner in crime also had some amazing scenes (picking up American girls...)! What a great film, fantastic re-watchability.

Scarface is a grandiose modern morality play, excessive, broad and operatic at times.

It is a serious, often hilarious peek under the rock where nightmares strut in $800 suits and Armageddon lies around the next twist of treason.

Scarface is the most stylish and provocative - and maybe the most vicious - serious film about the American underworld since Francis Ford Coppola's "Godfather."

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.

Perfomances are excellent, and despite its moralistic conclusion, the film has since become de rigueur viewing for crack barons, who know a good shoot-em-up when they see one.
