Présentation de l'éditeur

"I always tell the truth. Even when I lie." - Tony Montana 
'Scarface' is a powerful, stylized commentary on violence, materialism, excess, corruption and crime in America. Set during the drug-driven decadence of Miami in the 1980's, it is a rags to riches story about the rise and fall of an illegal immigrant from dishwasher to narcotics kingpin who is undone by greed and delusions of grandeur triggered by cocaine psychosis. It is both thrilling entertainment and a wicked, nightmarish parody of the American dream. 
'Scarface: The Ultimate Guide' places the movie in its historical context and examines its origins, development, production, release, critical reception and current status in the culture. The highlight of the book is a detailed analysis of the movie from first frame to FADE OUT.
Everything there is to possibly know about the history of the 1983 gangster classic is here. 
Who really came up with the idea? Martin Bregman or Al Pacino?
How many of the 18 creatures mentioned in the film can you name?
Did Pacino ad-lib the word 'yeyo'? 
Why do rappers like the film so much? 
How does music play a part in the movie? 
Is 'Scarface' anti-Semitic? 
What is the relevance of the pelican? 
Was it really dismissed by critics? 
What did Quentin Tarantino steal from the movie? 
Where does the line 'Don't get high on your own supply' come from?
Did you know the production was chased out of Miami and had to relocate to L.A.? 
What is the significance of the name 'Elvira'?
Was Omar Suarez really a stoolie? 
Why are there so many background shots of US Presidents in the movie? 
Is the chainsaw scene really violent? 
Why are there so many errors in the movie? 
Where was Sosa's estate shot? 
What are Tony's true feelings about his sister? 
Who exactly is Nick The Pig? 
Sit back, grab a glass of gin, spark up a Cuban cigar, check the magazine in your M16 assault rifle with 40mm grenade launcher, find a mirror or clear a surface on your desk and let 'Scarface: The Ultimate Guide' take you on an illuminating tour of your favorite movie. 
"Chi-Chi. Chi-Chi. Get the yeyo."

5.0 étoiles sur 5 ESSENTIAL READING 23 octobre 2013
Format:Format Kindle
At long last, "Scarface" receives the serious treatment it deserves. Thanks to the meticulous research and creative mind of screenwriter and novelist Damian Stevenson fans now have an bible for the 1983 De Palma movie. Good movie books are rare.
There is one other book on "Scarface" ("Scarface Nation" By Ken Tucker) but it is riddled with errors and is superficial. "Scarface: The Ultimate Guide" is a detailed and intelligent examination of the movie from its inception to release - and beyond. The book feels fresh and is a great, fun and informative read. No doubt the release of this incredibly detailed, authoritative book is timed to the movie's 30th anniversary this year.
I have seen `Scarface' countless times and thought I knew everything about it but I learned a lot from this book. At times the information was a little overwhelming. I'm not sure if people care too much about camera angles or the references to `Star Wars' but at least the writer keeps the technical aspects to a minimum. The book's best part is the shot by shot (or close) analysis of the film. It's like seeing the movie through a new set of eyes. I had no idea De Palma's film was so layered.
The facts that struck me that I wasn't aware of before: how similar the movie is to the original 1932 film (especially so much of the dialogue!); how the shoot had to leave Miami because of protests about the script's treatment of Cubans; how the style of the film influenced the look of "Miami Vice;" the movie's strange antisemitism; the power of the music and how it is used; how De Palma uses the camera to enhance scenes; and all the trivia that is packed into this short but brilliant book!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fantastic and educational! 22 octobre 2013

The definitive book on "Scarface" is here. This is essential reading for fans of the movie (the 1980s one). There is no audio commentary for "Scarface," so I was excited to read this. The book discusses the origins of the movie and its development history -- with essays, trivia, and lots of fascinating factoids. I had no idea most of "Scarface" was Sidney Lumet's idea. The producers wanted to do a 1930s period piece before he thought to set it in Miami. This was not Oliver Stone's idea, but Stone's script borrows heavily from the original movie -- including a lot of the dialogue.

This book debunks a lot of myths about "Scarface" and gets to the truth behind `Making Of' documentaries and all the false rumors (like Pacino ad-libbed the word `yeyo') put out on the web by the likes of IMDB. The book goes through a lengthy analysis of the movie, scene by scene. I thought I knew a lot about "Scarface" until I read this book. Give it a read if you like film analysis and you like "Scarface"!

Wow! I want an Ultimate Guide to all my favorite movies. This is an incredible amount of information. He knows everything about this movie and the original 1932 film. In fact, he’s a real Hollywood historian! Even if this isn’t your favorite movie, it’s a truly fun read. And if Scarface is in your top ten, order this now – you’ll love it!
