[quote=“Scarface”]Was that supposed to be a burn? Tell you what - I prefer watching God Pacino a million times rather than sit through another pseudo-intellectual bullshit monologue about some fucking dream.[/quote]
If I wanted to burn I’d at least used a lighter!
But seriously, Brian De Palma is a great director but Scarface was over-the-top self-indulgence. Raising Cain, Dressed to Kill, Blow Out, Sisters and even Snake Eyes (just as indulgent, though) are better than Scarface.
No Country AND Scarface share frames in the Overrated Hall of Fame. However, anti-intellectualism is such a cop-out.
I understand if you watch films for Pacino and different reasons than most and all that. It’s all good and great for you but to knock a film, particularly an adaptation of a novel, because it has something intelligent to say about human existence is just lazy.
Not to mention Scarface and No Country both share similar existential themes. But I don’t wanna bore you with big words.
ONTO THE COCAINE! RUSH! RUSH GET THE YAYO!
