Scarface is a stunning and hard,for it's time,movie.Tony Camonte is a gangster who not understand anything beyond violence.The only aim for him is to reach at the top,which is nothing more than than the financial success and only that.
Howard Hawks captures well the thirst for power by Tony,and creating a harsh, pessimistic, bold and pitch-black film, influenced by the era,the economic cra... read more

Scarface is one of the very early classics that is underrated and not fully appreciated as much as the remake is. The 1930s version of Scarface is different compared to the 1983 remake. The stories were both different but the remake adaptation is cooler and more enjoyable. There were some moments where there was some similarity especially the way Tony treats his sister.

For sheer innovation, Scarface: Shame of a Nation might just be the best of the three most infamous and enduring pre-noir/pre-code gangster classics that essentially dictated the language and look of the genre. (The other two would be Little Caesar and The Public Enemy.) That’s not to say that Scarface is a perfect film however, it’s brisk pace leaves behind many supporting characters and some... read more

"THE CLASSICS YOU SHOULD HAVE SEEN BY NOW Paul Muni Even before Paul Muni is shown onscreen as Antonio “Tony” Camonte (a character loosely inspired by Al Capone and who, in turn, inspired the character of Tony Montana in the 1983 reinterpretation of Scarface), his shadowy silhouette conveys much about the character’s raw ambition through body language alone. At the start of his career, Muni was dubbed “The New Lon Chaney” for his ability to completely immerse himself in a role. That sa"
