Movie Review - Scarface

Movie Review No 45

This movie starts with the opening of Cuban harbours in 1980 to "allow" US Cubans to collect relatives...... but it seems that some of the Cuban prisons were emptied in the process!  One of them is Tony "Scarface" Montana played by Al Pacino and the moving starts with his initial interrogation by the Police on his arrival in Florida.   The story charts his immigration process, integration into the Miami crime and drugs scene, meeting F Murray Abraham early in the story.  He meets a rather nasty death later on though! The movie culminates with his rise to the top of the criminal food chain with a matching cocaine addiction (He ends up snorting coke straight off his table leaving a smudge on the end of his nose!) and an eye popping gun battle with a rival gang in his villa.....!

It's violent, so an adult movie, but yes!


Doughnut holes with lots of icing  sugar......!!
