DNR Filmclub | Tribute to Brain De Palma: Scarface

Bewaren
Brian De Palma is one of the most prolific, poorly understood and controversial directors in the history of American cinema. His career has spanned three decades and includes tremendously important works. De Palma’s characters, the phrases they utter and the philosophies they propitiate have been absorbed into our cultural vocabulary. Through persistence and longevity De Palma has created a body of work that is as moody and recalcitrant as it is aesthetically unassailable.
  
In spite of his popularity, De Palma is admittedly notorious. He has been accused of misanthropy, misogyny, cynicism — and their opposites: of 'loving women', of humanism, idealism and gushing romanticism. He is known alternately as a dispassionate plagiarist of Hitchcock and a maverick, a wicked satirist, an avant-gardist, a 'sell-out', a fiercely independent iconoclast and an intellectual; a creator of intensely personal or detached, deterministic and cerebral movies.

During February we will screen four of his virtuous masterworks that mark the pick of his career.

Scarface (1983)
Director Brian De Palma and star Al Pacino take it to the limit in this stylized, ultra-violent and eminently quotable gangster epic that walks a thin white line between moral drama and celebratory excess .

A beautiful, at times poetic, and often dazzling exercise in filmmaking, the film is based on the classic 1932 gangster film of the same name, rewritten by Oliver Stone. Pacino plays the lead role of Tony Montana, a Cuban immigrant who makes landfall in Miami and then begins to carve out a piece of a corrupted American Dream for himself.
