Scarface (1983)

Directed by
Brian de Palma

Brian de Palma's widely-celebrated modern-day gangster classic is a powerful, uncompromising, violent and shocking update of Howard Hawks's original 1932 movie. Now relocated to Miami, it follows events as Cuban immigrant Tony Montana - an unforgettable performance by Al Pacino - climbs his way up through the American underworld and builds up a nationwide drug-trafficking empire which then collapses around him.

Released in 1983 and scripted by Oliver Stone, the film features one of cinema's most gruelling sequences, involving a chainsaw, a shower and a strung-up henchman. Pacino is terrific in the lead role and there's strong support from Michelle Pfeiffer, Steven Bauer and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio.

Highly recommended.
