Anyhow, to "enjoy" Scarface (which is NOT a remake of the Muni version) you need a high tolerance for violence and an iron stomach.
Scarface represents the American dream to have it all, and he does come to have it all when he works his way up in the cocaine business.One of the best but also brutal scenes takes place when Tony and his partner are sent to make a pickup that goes wrong. Another guy that goes in with Tony gets chainsawed in the bathtub, which is brutal now but must have been much more so in its 1983 release.But eventually he works his way up, and his boss tries to off him, and this led to Tony taking over Frank(his boss), killing him and taking over the empire. From the beginning Tony viewed him as a weak man whose time was running out.He takes Franks former wife Elvira(played by Michelle Pfeiffer)and marries her.So at this point he had it all, the house, the wife, the money, everything a man could want in life.
I think another point brought out in the movie is that staying on top is harder than getting there, and this is evident when Tony becomes addicted to the cocaine. It along with paranoia contributed to his gradual seperation from everyone around him, causing him to hurt those in his way. I was shocked when he shot his partner Manny Ray who had been so loyal to him, but it was also in part to his overprotectedness of his sister Gina. Once he is on top, his control begins to spiral out of control because of his distrust in anyone but himself, and his willingness to do everything in his power to keep his empire strong at all costs.His final demise is when he screws Sosa, a man he had set up a partnership with, by failing to return a favor by killing a politician who was bent on taking down Sosa and the cocaine industry that he saw as the fault of the South American government. The man makes a speech to the United Nations that he was not supposed to make and this seals Tony's fate, although the reason Tony would not kill the man was because a woman and children were with him. The final scene has Tony fighting till the very end when Sosa and his man invade Tony's mansion. It is one of the best closing scenes I have ever seen.
All in all the movie has a great message that power, or the excess of it, can bring down the strongest of men. The progression of Tony from Cuban immigrant to one of Miami's most powerful drug overlords makes for a great storyline, an I also thought this was a fantastically directed film by Brian DePalma, and after watching this you are sure to remember many famous quotes from the movie, of which would only be edited by Amazon if I quoted them here. I highly recommend this movie. There is a lot of violence, though it may seem tame to some these days, and a lot of profanity, paricularly the F word. It all works in this film though in keeping a real perspective of the cocaine industry at least as it was then. Kids should NOT see this, but if you are grown this is one movie you must experience for yourself for the story and the great soundtrack to it as well. This is a great DVD to own , and definately one of my top 10 movies of all time.
