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.

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

Description: Big Louis Costillo, last of the old-style gang leaders is slain, and his former bodyguard Tony Camonte is taken into custody.

“One of the best directors ever makes one of the best films ever: Howard Hawks makes "Scarface". Everything is outstanding in this masterpiece of cinema, the exciting, neatly told story of the raise and fall of Tony Camonte (Al Capone's alter-ego). Powerful script, magnificent black and white photography, excellent camera-work, an important and courageous social message, just four years after the St. Valentine's massacre.” read more
