Scarface

Scarface ★★★★½

The first time I watched this film was at the beginning of my quest to learn the art. I was fool-hearty and had not yet realized how genius Brian De Palma is. I chalked it up as just another overrated film perpetuated by dude-bros so they could hang the poster on their wall.

I was wrong.

This is cinematic purity. One of the greatest crime films of all time. That's why it lives on.
