In Scarface Nation, EW’s Ken Tucker explores how the 1983 Brian De Palma film has infiltrated everything from dorm rooms to black and Hispanic culture. ”It’s the only movie that didn’t need to have sequels to become its own franchise,” Tucker says. ”It’s a pop culture phenomenon that its creators could never have predicted.” Even he’s not immune to the movie’s allure. ”I bought Scarface pajamas,” he says. ”It kind of freaked out my wife.”
