FORCED PERSPECTIVE, Ep.79 – My Favorite Film Series: "The World is Yours" (Scarface - 1983)
Say hello to my little friend!
On this VERY SPECIAL episode of FORCED PERSPECTIVE, SportsGuy515 and Adolfo begin a brand-new mini-series known simply as MY FAVORITE FILM. For this first entry into the mini-series, the duo are joined by special guest BIG D as they thoroughly discuss and dissect SportsGuy’s all-time favorite film – from 1983, the gangster classic, Scarface. PLUS:
-The appeal of not only the story of Scarface, but the character of TONY MONTANA himself.
-How this film saw the birth of the phenomenon known as “Loud Al Pacino.”
-Let’s not forget that this is a remake of the Howard Hawks’ 1932 Scarface film…
-The film’s reception among the Hispanic/Latino community, and the “accuracy” of Pacino’s accent.
-How the opening interrogation scene is one of the most perfect intros for a character in film history.
-The infamous CHAINSAW SCENE, and what you think you see vs. what you actually see.
-The incredibly fun SCARFACE: THE WORLD IS YOURS video game.
-The (seemingly apparent) incest undertones of Tony and Gina’s relationship.
-A quick production history of the film, including its battle with the MPAA over its initial X RATING.
-The best way to watch Showgirls (according to Adolfo) is…
-The fantastic Giorgio Moroder score.
-Another Scarface remake??
-The legacy of Scarface
