Written by Oliver Stone, Brian De Palma is at his stylish gangster thriller best in the classic drug cartel film about the high and low times of Tony Montana, Scarface. In the 1980s Montana entered the United States with a flood of Cuban immigrants sent by Fidel Castro to be reunited with relatives. Obsessed with the American Dream and the notion of making it, Montana and his friend Manny slowly work their way up in Miami. Starting with small-time jobs they eventually get in with drug kingpin Frank Lopez but greed and lust prove that all good things can’t last forever. Success may come and go but one thing is for sure, you’ll remember him as… Scarface.
