"Scarface is a 1983 American crime drama film directed by Brian De Palma and written by Oliver Stone . A remake of the 1932 film of the same name, Scarface tells the story of Cuban refugee Tony Montana(Al Pacino) who arrives in 1980s Miami with nothing, and rises up to become a powerful drug kingpin.
The initial critical response to Scarface was mixed, with criticism over excessive violence and graphic language. Some Cuban expatriates in Miami objected to the film's portrayal of Cubans as criminals and drug traffickers. Contemporary reviews have been more positive, and screenwriters and directors such as Martin Scorsese have notably praised the movie. It is now considered a classic within the mob film genre and has resulted in many cultural references such as in comic books and video games."
