Scarface is arguably one of the finest mob-themed movies ever created for the screen. Directed by Brian de Palma and penned by Oliver Stone, this film is one of Al Pacino’s best films up to date. The story is about a Cuban refugee, who wants to experience living the American dream. However, the odds were stacked against him as he pursued his dream. But he persevered to triumph and get what he ultimately wants.
The film initially got a negative review from the critics. They thought that the violence was unnecessary. The expatriate Cubans also objected to the way they were portrayed on screen. However, a year after release, the film got reappraised and got positive reviews. Scarface became one of the best mob films of all time.
