Considering Scarface’s 1983 origins, it’s a pessimistic view of drugs, even predictive as to how ingrained cocaine would embed itself through the decade. A key scene involves Montana soaking in a bathtub, watching the news as the anchor pushes against an idea to legalize and tax the trade. The resulting ferocity comes as a result of clumsy, near-sighted policy. Montana brings this out from society’s shadows. Shooting people in the street isn’t an elevation of drug-related violence, rather a turn that makes lawlessness visible to a public willingly ignoring it otherwise.

While Universal has managed to inject quite a bit of extra dynamic range into the synth score, there’s seldom much bass to speak of. Except for when Tony gets out his little friend, anyway...

And why? Montana feels owed something, the promised American success he distorts to suit him. When that isn’t offered, when control is torn from Montana, and when violence takes those closest to him, the melee ensues. In that way, Scarface isn’t inherently critical toward immigration, so much as the empty political promises that boast about America’s ideal. That means exceptional detail too, drawing textural qualities from Miami’s sights and dazzling via facial definition. Resolution produces firm, consistent sharpness. At home, Scarface never showed this degree of fidelity; the jump is substantial. The use of HDR is fairly limited - according to the metadata reader on my Panasonic UB820 4K Blu-ray player, the maximum frame average brightness level is just 155 nits (though somewhere in there is a peak light level of 1000 nits).

The Rebirth discusses how the film brought to life a lost sub-genre, The Acting continuing although on a more self-explanatory path, and The Creating is the core making-of. Together, those three near the hour mark. A making-of for the video game version is clearly dated, but at least they brought it over. A funny look at the TV edits are here too. For added fun, U-Control offers a body and F-bomb counter, alongside picture-in-picture featurettes culled from the pieces above. SCARFACE 35TH ANNIVERSARY REUNION / THE SCARFACE PHENOMENON / THE WORLD OF TONY MONTANA / THE REBIRTH / THE ACTING / THE CREATING The restoration goes a bit heavy on the grain at times, though, pushing it beyond the point where it feels like a completely natural by-product of the 35mm source. Yet at other times scenes look as if they’ve had the grain smoothed away.

Limited to just 3000 copies, this new 4K version also comes with the blu-ray included and has a rigid clamshell box with a magnectic closure. Other documentaries after that comprise: a good 12-minute look at the real world that gave birth to Tony Montana; an interesting 10-minute featurette considering this Scarface alongside the Howard Hawks original; a fascinating 15-minute featurette on the film’s unforgettable cast; and anunmissable half hour feature on the making of the film, taking in everything from the locations to the direction, script, stunt work and cinematography.
