Both the Borgias and The Great Gatsby are evoked in this gangster classic, a portrait of Al Capone when he still rattled the headlines. “Scarface remains, as it was in 1932, the last word on the Chicago gangsterdom of the 1920s, the smartest, cleverest, punchiest portrayal of an individual mobster’s rise and fall” (Todd McCarthy).
