The tale of Scarface is a violent story of excess, crime and corruption in America in the 1980s. It shows you drug-powered Miami through the eyes of an illegal immigrant who goes from dishwasher to narcotics kingpin, only to be destroyed by cocaine.The story is a dark parody of the American dream.
'Scarface: The Ultimate Guide' dissects the movie in its historical context, its origins, development, production, release, critical reception and current cultural niche. The author proclaims that the "The highlight of the book is a detailed analysis of the movie from first frame to FADE OUT."
Everything you might wish to know about the history of the 1983 film is included, from actors to screenplay and more.
Movie buffs and gangster lovers will want to own this detailed guide to the iconic film.
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!
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"!
Stevenson offers a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of the screenplay and the choice of producer Oliver Stone and director Brian De Palma. His analysis is enlightening, his delivery—entertaining, and the research underlying his writing is impressive.
It's a rare pearl for movies fans and especially for people passionate about the true crime genre.
I usually read non fiction not for pure entertaining purposes but that one is highly enjoyable
