Brian De Palma's 1983 remake is a cultural phenomenon. The movie, after 30 years later, is still regularly referred to as one of the best films of it's time. Al Pacino's machine gun-wielding kingpin Tony Montana is as iconic as Michael Corleone, with even more quotable lines like, "say hello to my little friend" or "in this country, you gotta make the money first." DePalma, along with screen writer Oliver Stone, switched the original Italian mob to the Cuban cartels in Miami's cocaine-fueled drug realm.
