He tags the 1983 film a "superficial masterpiece" (a phrase he attributes to Pauline Kael), yet this indelible cheeseball epic remains both remarkably pervasive and incredibly enduring 25 years after its release. Tucker explores the making of the film and its cinematic signifiers. But he also details "Scarface"'s roots and its incredibly far-reaching reverberations.
The text is compellingly argued and richly documented and the author is amazingly fluent in both high and low culture. (He even provides links for hip hop videos that emulate the "Scarface" ethos.)
Oh yeah, and it's beautifully written. The introduction alone is worth the price of the book. I'll say it again: Wow!

Plenty of missed opportunities here. Poor execution, this book feels like it was written in a single weekend. The worst crime of all? It's a waste of YOUR time. Save your money. Read morePublished on February 8, 2009 by bostonbeans
