Scarface

Brian De Palma / US, 1983 / 170 min.

Giorgio Moroder had already left a lasting mark on electronic music with his production of Donna Summer’s worldwide hit I Feel Love when he agreed to score Scarface, starring Al Pacino in his iconic role of Tony Montana. Like the film, the soundtrack had a huge impact on hip hop circles and was often sampled.
