I'm writing this after watching the 4k remaster, which is gorgeously made. The rise of Tony Montana from bum to drug lord has never looked so stunning. Scarface is exceedingly brutal, explicit, and sexy. Even today a newcomer to this film will easily be swept into it's violent story. In this sense, it's timeless. Al Pacino's legendary performance as Montana will forever structure the definition of 'gangster.' He's honestly so much fun to watch and I'm still quoting him now days after watching it. My only issue would be it's runtime but I can understand that intention. The longer you live in Montana's world the more anxious you become. By the end even sharing in his paranoia.
