Scarface is a grandiose modern morality play, excessive, broad and operatic at times.

It is a serious, often hilarious peek under the rock where nightmares strut in $800 suits and Armageddon lies around the next twist of treason.

Scarface is the most stylish and provocative - and maybe the most vicious - serious film about the American underworld since Francis Ford Coppola's "Godfather."

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.
