TITLE OF MOVIE Scarface Studio Universal Studios Producer Martin Bregman Director Brian De Palma Stars Al Picino Steven Bauer Michelle Pfeiffer Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio Robert Loggia Year of the Movies Release 1983 A basic summary of the Plot Al Pacino gives an unforgettable performance as Tony Montana one of the most ruthless gangsters ever portrayed on film Scarface follows the violent career of a small-time Cuban gangster who guns his way to the top of Miamis cocaine empire It follows his rise to criminal wealth and thousands of immigrants arriving in Florida in the 1980s Pacino whose intelligence guts and ambition help him rise to the top of a criminal world but his paranoia and over protective desire to protect his kid sister played by Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio prove to be his reasons for falling to the bottom leading to his eventual murder The films brutal violence and lack of positive characters still make it controversial and disliked by certain critics especially make in the early 1980s when movies of such violence were rare Michelle Pfeiffer plays Tonys coke-addicted trophy wife and Steven Bauer is his concerned friend F Murray Abraham Robert Loggia and Paul Shenar are some of Tonys sleazy business partners and potential killers This movie shows the decades drug of choice and is very much a film of the 1980s in its portrayal of unstoppable ego-centrism Genre of the Movie Drama and CrimeGangster Special Cinematic Techniques I thought there were many well used cinematic techniques A couple of the things that I noticed were how well the camera angles caught the action There were plenty of fighting scenes in Scarface and I thought they captured them very well The special effects were very good especially for a movie in the early 1980s I think that this movie was very well done from all aspects Review Scarface magnificently captured the gruesome coke game of the 1980s and the ego-centered organized crime
