Now i have to admit it takes a lot of anything non horror/sci-fi to catch my eye scarface is one of those films that have, i've often tried to read between the lines and this book has confirmed and scraped a lot of my ideas about the film, possibly one of the best in depth movie break downs i've had the pleasure to read hope to see more by this author on various other films.
Keep it up Damian

Scarface: The Ultimate Guide, by Damian Stevenson is the first movie guide book I've read. I enjoy watching the behind the scenes documentaries on TV about popular films and this book was no different. It's filled with interviews with the production staff, actors, film bloopers, interesting facts about the previously filmed movie with a similar plot, nuances about the history behind the storyline, and even who was considered to play in the rolls later owned by the actors that made this film the pop culture it is known to be today. I would highly recommend it to the Scarface movie fan!

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.

GREAT BOOK ON SCARFACE I loved this! Great information, clever analysis and a fascinating background history of the movie. Recommended to anyone who likes 'Scarface,' Al Pacino or movies in general.

Wow! I want an Ultimate Guide to all my favorite movies. This is an incredible amount of information. He knows everything about this movie and the original 1932 film. In fact, he's a real Hollywood historian! Even if this isn't your favorite movie, it's a truly fun read. And if Scarface is in your top ten, order this now - you'll love it!

Scarface: The Ultimate Guide by Damian Stevenson

A superb book for cult die-hards of the film Scarface - a highly informative read, which will bring back many memories from this super film!

Stevenson has crafted something special with this classic and is certainly not one to pass by. A great writer of novels such as, Operation Armada (Book 1 of The Ian Fleming Files) and The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Parsifal - so, no surprise to see this comprehensive guide.

The details are very well put together, capturing the essence of the characters, the movie and the film-making aspects throughout the pages. Good in-depth research is included defining the role of Pacino and the rest of the cast - Stevenson presents this very well indeed.

An all-time gangster hit - any fan of the film or movie buff should now grab the book!!!

A strong 5***** Fantastic!!!

This is a brilliant book regardless of whether or not you are a huge Scarface fan. I enjoyed the book as a big film fan and it did have me reaching for the DVD. The book is encyclopedic in its wealth of information about the film and is well-organised and very engaging.
I look forward to reading other film books which the author promises.
