The Greatest Movie of All Time
How can one not be a fan of gangster films? All of my favorite movies are gangster movies. These movies are developed around the actions of gangsters, who operate outside the law, stealing and violently murdering their way through life. They show the “pursuit of the American Dream,” a success story turned upside down, in which criminals live in an up-side down dream world of success and wealth. The characters are usually from a poor immigrant family, and they often fall prey to crime in the pursuit of wealth, status, and material possessions. Although they are doomed to failure and death, most of the time, the gangsters are portrayed as the victims of circumstance, because the stories are told from their point of view. My favorite gangster movie is Scarface, not to mention it is one of the greatest movies ever made. In my opinion, these movies should have a story line that will keep my attention, memorable quotes or dialect, amazing directors and outstanding actors.
The beginning of the plot lets you know that this is going to be a great film. Scarface tells the story of Cuban refugee Tony Montana, who arrives in 1980s Miami with nothing and rises up to become a powerful drug kingpin. Antonio 'Tony” Montana has just arrived from Cuba along with his friend Manolo Ray and about 125,000 other Cubans. It seems Fidel Castro has opened a Cuban port allowing Cubans to go to the United States. Unknown to the U.S., Castro has secretly cleared his jails and included prisoners with the refugees. I mean to see that Fidel Castro is plotting from Cuba is amazing.
Tony is an ambitious person; he wants the world. He always says what is on his mind and does not let people take advantage of him. His attitude eventually lands him a job with Drug Lord Frank Lopez. Lopez immediately takes a liking to Tony, who takes a liking to Lopez’s trophy girlfriend Elvira. Lopez is not greedy; he is happy with the state of his business, but less happy...
