A bombastic, over-the-top icon of cinema, a clear product of the eighties and still with all the power it had on release; Scarface remains De Palma’s most influential work. Al Pacino stars as Tony Montana, an exiled Cuban criminal rises to the top of Miami’s criminal world on a mountain of cocaine.
With intro by film critic Mark Searby, author of Al Pacino: The Movies Behind The Man.
“An unashamed study of selfish, sadistic criminality, and all the better for it.”
Tom Huddleston, Time Out
