Re-issued for its twentieth anniversary in the full glory of new 35mm prints, this is truly a modern-day classic, far surpassing the 1932 original in style and popularity. It has been referenced in everything from rap songs to The Simpsons to numerous other films, so if you've never seen it, here's your chance to see it on the big screen as it was meant to be experienced!

Al Pacino, in his second most career-defining performance (after Michael Corlione in the Godfather movies), stars as Tony Montana, an exiled Cuban criminal who goes to work for Miami drug lord Robert Loggia. Montana rises to the top of Florida's crime chain, appropriating Loggia's cokehead mistress (Michelle Pfeiffer) in the process. Meanwhile, his incestuous yearnings for his sister Gina (Mary Elizabeth Mastrontonio) influence his actions more than he would like to admit. We are inundated by blood by the bucketful as Al Pacino shines in one of the most famous of many Golden-Globe-nominated performances.

"The most stylish and provocative - the most vicious - serious film about the American underworld since Godfather."
      -- Vincent Canby, New York Times. Read this review.
