Say Goodbye to the Bad Guy

“This is paradise, I’m tellin’ ya. This town like a great big pussy just waiting to get fucked.”
— Tony Montana

You have got to love Scarface. Al Pacino is Tony Montana, a Cuban refugee who has left his destitute homeland to chase the American Dream. It’s not hard to relate to someone desperately vying for a better life in the United States.

Tony Montana is a very deep, complex, and disturbed character that only Al Pacino’s acting prowess could do justice. It is the story of someone who gets lost along the way, up the perceived ladder of success and then has to pay for all his misdeeds.

The setting and story progression unparalleled. The dialogues and script are phenomenal. Al Pacino’s delivery sublime. It is hard to imagine a more quotable film, though one has to stop quoting the film after going on the other side of twenty.
