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 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."

"Scarface: The Ultimate Guide", by Damian Stevenson, is "Ajabu". What's Ajabu? That's the Swahili word for the following superlatives: Astonishing...Amazing...Incredible...Extraordinary...Superb...Exquisite...Marvelous...Wonderful....Delightful...

I really am left at a loss of words to adequately convey what a precious, priceless, work of art this book is. It could have only been put together through one of two means: 1. sheer hard work, of the day in and day out, 18 hours a day work commonly associated with suicidal workaholics, or, quite simply, 2. a labor of love. After completing this book, there is no doubt it is the latter condition that give birth to this ultimate guidebook.

'Scarface: The Ultimate Guidebook', is everything it has been touted to be by others much more discerning, more demanding, and more rigorous than I. It is, if you allow me to quote a review I admired: "...a powerful, stylized commentary on violence, materialism, excess, corruption and crime in America." (end of quote) If you are a movie buff, a teacher, an actor or actress, or simply a regular human being like I am, trust me, this book belongs on your shelf. This one is special, extraordinarily special. I tip my hat to Mr. Damian Stevenson. Well done Sir!

Scarface: The Ultimate Guide by Damian Stevenson

A superb book for cult die-hards of the film Scarface - a highly informative read, which will bring back many memories from this super film!

Stevenson has crafted something special with this classic and is certainly not one to pass by. A great writer of novels such as, Operation Armada (Book 1 of The Ian Fleming Files) and The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Parsifal - so, no surprise to see this comprehensive guide.

The details are very well put together, capturing the essence of the characters, the movie and the film-making aspects throughout the pages. Good in-depth research is included defining the role of Pacino and the rest of the cast - Stevenson presents this very well indeed.

An all-time gangster hit - any fan of the film or movie buff should now grab the book!!!

A strong 5***** Fantastic!!!

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!

My slugs and I are huge fans of Scarface, both the original Howard Hawks film and the remake by Brian de Palma and it was pleasing to note that Damian Stevenson hasn't forgotten the Hawk's film, or the book for that matter, as many slugs that I've encountered only know the de Palma version. Moving on, there some films/books/cultural phenomenons that are worth dissecting and analysing and 1983's Scarface is one of them. It truly was a groundbreaking film for its dialogue, its acting, its truth and realism and it's a real joy to really get under the skin of it with Stevenson's book. Some pertinent questions are asked and many intriguing elements are discussed. True Scarface aficionados will love this.
