Scarface Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

[[Performer~P54596~Al Pacino~alpacino]] stars as Tony Montana, an exiled Cuban criminal who goes to work for Miami drug lord [[Performer~P42988~Robert Loggia~robertloggia]]. Montana rises to the top of Florida's crime chain, appropriating Loggia's cokehead mistress ([[Performer~P56469~Michelle Pfeiffer~michellepfeiffer]]) in the process. [[Performer~P93764~Howard Hawks~howardhawks]]' "X Marks the Spot" motif in depicting the story line's many murders is dispensed with in the 1983 Scarface; instead, we are inundated with blood by the bucketful, especially in the now-infamous buzz saw scene. One carry-over from the original Scarface is Tony Montana's incestuous yearnings for his sister Gina ([[Performer~P46334~Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio~maryelizabethmastrantonio]]). The screenplay for the 1983 Scarface was written by [[Performer~P112907~Oliver Stone~oliverstone]]. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
