Trivia

  • Though there has long been a myth that Pacino snorted real cocaine on camera, the "cocaine" used in the movie was supposedly powdered milk (even if De Palma has never officially stated what the crew used as a drug stand-in). But whatever it was, it created problems for Pacino's nasal passages. "For years after, I have had things up in there," Pacino said in 2015. "I don't know what happened to my nose, but it's changed."

Metacritic

100

Scarface is one of those special movies, like The Godfather, that is willing to take a flawed, evil man and allow him to be human.

Scarface is a B- movie with singularly silly psychological pretensions: its neo-primitivism is to the complex moral cosmos of Francis Coppola's Godfather saga as Disney is to Dickens. [09 Dec 1983]
