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

Underrated gangster classic.

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

“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 sometimes misplaces the emphasis on which ones it should be developing more for one. But still, the fact that it practically defined the conventions and filmic language of an entire genre cannot be denied or diminished.

Let’s get the bad out of the way first. As I said earlier, Scarface has a tendency to misplace emphasis from time to time, either on an oddly placed comical figure or mome” read more

"Howard Hawkisin Arpinaamaan verrattuna nykyiset gangsterielokuvat tuntuvat vain nössöiltä, eunukkien kyhäämiltä marisätkiltä, joita poltetaan yleiseen luonteettomuuteen mukaan pääsemiksi. Brian De Palman versiosta ei voi edes puhua samana päivänä. Niin eri maailmoista nämä elokuvat lopulta tulevat. Puhumatta näistä vähän uudemmissa gangsterielokuvissa, mitä olen vahingossa katsonut (paremmuusjärjestyksessä surkeimmasta kovimpaan: American Gangster, The Departed, Killing the"
