"Scarface Nation" [by Ken Tucker]

Highly recommended.

Scarface Nation: The Ultimate Gangster Movie by Ken Tucker (St. Martin’s Press)

Not only the behind-the-scenes making of the 1983 De Palma/Pacino film (and the 1932 Howard Hawks/Paul Muni version), but also a critical analysis of how Scarface influenced popular music, television shows, YouTube videos, and politics culture (See the chapter “President Scarface” with Bill Clinton and Dick Cheney, among others). “Revealing, intelligent, memorable, true.” —Lawrence Starling
