Abridged Book DescriptionEdit

Brian De Palma's updated remake of Howard Hawks' 1932 gangster classic Scarface is bloody, excessive, outrageous, and brilliantly crafted - and it sports a unforgettably histrionic performance from Al Pacino. When it first appeared, the film seemed like a striking departure for De Palma, away from Hitchcockian games with voyeurs, rear windows, and doppelgangers. Seen today, Scarface is quintessential De Palms, a treatise on the fragile conditions of male selfhood and power politics.
