The topic of my presentation is why everyone should watch the movie scarface, and if you have already seen it to watch it again,
This movie was directed by Brian De Palma,and written by Oliver Stone (produced-alexander, produced joy luck club)
“Scareface”came out in 1983, and feature’s Al Pacino as Tony Montana, Michelle Phifer as Elvira, and Steven Bauer as Manny Ray,
The story is about a Cuban refugee who makes his way over to Miami,Florida
Tony starts out as a dishwasher and hitman, who proceeds to enter into a life of cocaine dealing and organized crime.
He then become one of the biggest drug dealers in Florida.
The story has a rags to riches theme and is known for graphic violence.
This is an action/drama with many indepth plot twists and an incredulous amount of profanity.
The movie mostly portrays Scarface in thrid person view, which means the audience learns about the charactor Scarface through his actions and behaviors.
The film is not only at great movie, but a cultural icon to some people.
Scarface had a tremendous impact on the genre of rap music, and has inspired many rappers and producers to create songs.
The premise of this film was actually adapted from the novel “scareface”by Armitage Trail.
A Previse movie entitled, “Scareface, the Shame of the Nation” was made in 1932 ,directed by howard hawks and produced by Howard Hughes,
which depicts gang-warfare, polictical coruption, and police un-involvment. The main charactor “Tony” was
based loosely upon the real ganstar Al Capone, who actually loved the movie.
I have seen both movie’s and The 1983 “scarface” packs such a influencal punch of knowledge through
the actions and life of Pacino as Tony Mantana.
This film is known for having interesting quotes;
Some notable quotes are=
“Say hello to my little friend.”
“All I have in this world is my balls and my word and I don’t break them for no one.
“In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get the women.
“I always tell the truth. Even when I lie.
In conclusion go watch this movie and be happy with yourself, if you like
great movies with great acting, incredibly unusual dialog and suspenseful dramatic twists check out “Scarface”.
