And Justice for Al: 'Scarface'

We've made it to the third installment of And Justice for Al, where we did indeed get that scar eatin' pineapple. Now that this podcast has given the world several months of Pacino-related pleasure, it only makes sense to revisit his most divisive performance: Scarface.

This Brian De Palma-directed, Oliver Stone-written gangster movie has been referenced in hip-hop lyrics and plastered on dorm walls for decades, but is it any good? And why does Pacino's performance as Tony Montana stir up such rancor?

Andrew and Steve (with another drop-in from special guest and Al hater Tom Kutsch) delve into this cocaine-fueled classic to figure out what makes it so popular, and if it bolsters or weakens Pacino's sterling reputation.
