Based on Howard Hawks' original 1932 classic of the same name, it centers on fictional Cuban refugee Montana who comes to Florida in 1980 as a result of the Mariel Boatlift. Montana becomes a gangster against the backdrop of the 1980s cocaine boom. The film chronicles his rise to the top of Miami's criminal underworld and subsequent downfall in tragic Greek fashion. Oliver Stone has even gone on to say that he thinks Michael Mann "borrowed" much of the aesthetic of "Scarface" for the landmark TV show "Miami Vice."
The critical response to "Scarface" was genuinely positive even though it received some backlash for its violence and graphic language. Despite that, it has since gathered a phenomenal cult following.
The film has become an important cultural icon, inspiring posters, clothing, and many other references. The film's grainy black and white poster is a very popular decoration and is still in production, and as a result of its popularity has been parodied many times.
And now ... We have little kiddies performing it in front of a packed auditorium. Funny or horrifying? If Stone was dead, would he be rolling over in his grave?
