Intermission: Scarface

Its another quick hit on another classic film, as always with The Deucecast Intermission, and this time, the guys take on the Al Pacino gangster film Scarface from 1983.  A mainstay in the IMDb Top 250, and considered one of the greatest modern era films of all time, Scarface is the story of Tony Montana, a Cuban immigrant who rises to power in Miami and becomes a drug overlord... before watching all of it fall apart at the hands of his own product.

Starring Michelle Pfieffer, F. Murray Abraham, Robert Loggia, a bunch of names none of us had ever heard of, and Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, who later went on to be blue and naked in The Abyss and also star in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (outperforming Kevin Costner... but lets face it, the left knee of the guy who played Little John's younger sister outperformed Kevin Costner) and The Color of Money.

Listen to the episode and hear the disappointment dripping out of our voices as we all expected to... well, you know, actually like this movie...
