Poor, Arrogant to Rich Arrogant

Gangster – Al Pacino

Lesson22

Al Pacino plays the role of Tony Montana, a Cuban refugee in the movie “Scarface”. He lands up in the U.S. and establishes his character in the first scene itself where he is interrogated by the immigration officials. He is rough and tough with the officials and establishes the nature of the character, arrogant and carefree in the first scene itself. Kindly observe the body language and the Cuban dialect style that he has adopted for this movie.

Once he gets the U.S greencard, he starts working under Frank Lopez, a wealthy drug dealer. At their first meeting itself ,Tony falls for Frank’s girl friend ,Elvira Hancock. Tony meets his mother Georgina (Miriam Colon), and younger sister Gina (Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio ), of whom he is fiercely protective. His mother is disgusted by his life of crime and throws him out.

Frank sends Tony and Omar to Boliviato meet with cocaine kingpin Alejandro Sosa (Paul Shenar). Tony agrees to a deal with Sosa without Frank's approval, and Omar leaves to contact Frank. Sosa claims that Omar is a police informant and then has Tony witness as a beaten Omar is pushed to his death from a helicopter. Tony vouches for Frank's organization, and Sosa agrees to the deal, parting with a warning that Tony should never betray him. In Miami, Frank is infuriated by Omar's demise and the unauthorized deal struck by Tony. As a result, Tony's and Frank's relationship dissolves, resulting in Tony establishing his own organization and informing Elvira of his intentions toward her.

At a nightclub, corrupt detective Mel Bernstein (Harris Yulin) attempts to extort money from Tony in return for police protection and information. Tony angers Frank further by openly pursuing Elvira in the club. When Tony sees Gina dancing and being touched by a man, he argues with, and hits Gina before Manny takes her home. Hitmen then attempt to assassinate Tony, but he escapes the club. Suspecting that his former boss sent both Bernstein and the hitmen, Tony, Manny and Chi-Chi go to Frank's office, where they find him with Bernstein. Frank confesses to his involvement and begs for his life, but the group kills both him and Bernstein.

In the scene where Tony kills both Frank and Bernstein, Al Pacino is at its best. When Frank falls on his feet begging for mercy, he coolly says to Manny to “shoot this piece of chicken”. He then proceeds to shoot Bernstein and the best part is when he tells Frank’s henchman “Do you wanna job”?

Tony marries Elvira and, with Sosa's supplies, he builds a multi-million-dollar empire. By 1983, the operation gradually struggles as Tony becomes increasingly paranoid, he and Elvira excessively use cocaine.

In the scene that follows, Al Pacino gets into an argument with his wife while having dinner and has a go at the people at the restaurant. Kindly observe Al Pacino’s acting in this scene where he is fully under the influence of drugs. His body is not in control and keeps swaying as he shouts at the people in the restaurant.
