Seems like in the last few years it's not only gained popularity but also become some sort of iconic clothing line for young wanna be thugs.

I saw this one retard (a fat white boy groomed to look like he was some sort of Cholo-thug) at Costco wearing a baseball-type button up jersey with Scarface written really big in what looked like bedazzles... and underneath he was wearing another Scarface shirt of the obvious scene with Pacino and the M16/M203.

Do an eBay or Yahoo! search for Scarface clothing... you'll see just how much there seems to be a market for it.

Has Scarface somehow become a wannabe gangsta role model?

Tony Montana has been a cult icon for over 20 years. There has been more merchandising tied to the film in the last few years. You can even get Scarface action figures, and models of the cars he drove in the film. I have an orignal Scarface poster, that I got for my birthday 10 years ago. Great movie.

Sadly, yes. There's a feature on the Anniversary Edition's second disc titled, "Def Jam Presents: Origins of a Hip-Hop Classic" fetauring interviews with bling-laden gangsta moguls describing how inspirational the film was, adding, only incidentally (and pretty damned disingenuously), that that life is"wrong."

I'm sure Al Pacino and Brian DePalma are very happy with the fact that they created a character so likeable that there are idiots out there that want to be just like him.

Man... what happened to positive role models in this country?

Come on, people have been cheering for bad guys since the silent era.

Me neither. I rented it after the anniversary edition came out. It was okay, but not worth buying. <shrug>

Anyone notice, that Grand Theft Auto 3 used the soundtrack from Scarface for one of the radio stations.

Scarface is a great movie.

I can't believe that all this bashing is coming from some of the same guys who think the boring, slow-paced, pseudo-action movie known as Heat, is the greatest movie ever made.

Don't get me wrong, anyone wearing the clothes from Scarface is a dork derserving of redicule and persecution, but the movie is good.

Why do people wear Scarface clothing?

Because. That's why.

Tony Montana was not inspirational for being a coke-lord, he was a "role model" because he started out with shit for shit and ended up incredibly successful until the things he got into caught up with him.


You can kinda think of it like the fucks who wear Che Guevara shirts. Its not because he was a commie mother fucker who I am glad was shot, it was because he rose up and in a way unified a nation. Che the Revolutionary, not Che the Pinko.



FTR, I god damn hate Che Guevara and people who wear his shirts.
