It really IS the ultimate guide,
This review is from: Scarface: The Ultimate Guide (Kindle Edition)
Wow! This is an amazingly informative and readable guide. If you love, like, or are just curious about the movie Scarface, this guide is for you. It provides a thorough, detailed, and extremely well-researched analysis of the movie, complete with a comparison of the original 1932 version and its 1983 remake. I loved this line that Mr. Stevenson writes in his comparison, "There are more bullets in the 1932 movie and more blood in 1983."
He follows up this point with an insightful analysis of the use of violence in movies, and the differences in suggested violence (think the shower scene in Psycho) and violence shown on the screen. Suggested violence, writes Mr. Stevenson, "is still shocking and disturbing."
This guide doesn't leave a single aspect of the movie untouched: themes, music, critical reception, selection of actors, historical background, cinematic techniques and parallels between Scarface, Psycho, Pulp Fiction and even Macbeth, it's all here. Movie buffs are sure to love this ultimate guide.
