How Cuban is Scarface? Tony invited Cuban American Royce Lopez on the show to discuss this topic. Everything from the way they talk and dress in the film will be discussed. We’ll also talk about the plot of the movie and see if there are any inaccuracies there.
After getting a green card in exchange for assassinating a Cuban government official, Tony Montana (Al Pacino) stakes a claim on the drug trade in Miami. Viciously murdering anyone who stands in his way, Tony eventually becomes the biggest drug lord in the state, controlling nearly all the cocaine that comes through Miami. But increased pressure from the police, wars with Colombian drug cartels and his own drug-fueled paranoia serve to fuel the flames of his eventual downfall.
