Scarface is the film that every ‘wannabe gangsta’ watches and studies like it’s apart of their curriculum. Scarface, if you neglected to see it, is the story about the rise and fall of a Cuban immigrant turned cocaine dealer and all around bad guy. The film made Pacino an even bigger name with his portrayal as Tony Montana. The film runs for about three hours but that doesn’t phase anyone who watches it; if it comes on TV you can bet that you’re going to be sitting there enjoying the rollercoaster ride of the De Palma classic.
