Scarface is one of De Palma’s best outings as a director. Moreover, he managed to get his ultraviolent vision out untouched. De Palma assembled a panel of narcotics experts to convince the ratings board that the film, initially rated X, was an accurate and socially necessary look at the drug world. He then sent out his preferred director's cut for distribution. The result was one of the most uncensored pieces of violent art ever unleashed on film.
