After Tony and Manny finish talking to Omar for the first time, and about to quit the cafe, a man in a tan shirt and white pants is using the telephone in a booth in front of the cafe. As they walk away the cafe owner asks where they're going, and Tony throws the apron at him and retires. The man is not in the telephone booth in the close up shots of the cafe owner. There is a cut back to a widescreen shot as they continue to walk away and the same man is back in the telephone booth. See more »

Scarface is a fiction account of the activities of a small group of ruthless criminals. The characters do not represent the Cuban/ American Community and it would be erroneous and unfair to suggest that they do. The vast majority of Cuban/Americans have demonstrated a dedication, vitality, and enterprise that has enriched the American scene. See more »
Directed by Brian De Palma and written by Oliver Stone, "Scarface" is a movie that will not be forgotten. A Cuban refugee named Tony Montana (Pacino) comes to America for the American Dream. Montana then becomes the "king" in the drug world as he ruthlessly runs his empire of crime in Miami, Florida. This gangster movie is very violent, and some scenes are unpleasant to watch. This movie has around 180+ F-words and is almost three hours long. This movie is entertaining and you will never get bored. You cheer for the Drug-lord, and in some scenes you find out that Montana isn't as evil as some other Crime Lords. This is a masterpiece and i recommend that you see this. You will not be disappointed. 9/10
