Scarface has all the elements of a good story. The elements contained within the framework of this film sets it apart from things like plays, novels or activities like sculpture or painting. (pg. 32) In the book ‘The Art of watching films’ authors Joseph M. Boggs and W. Petrie shed light on some of the critical aspects of film reviewing. According to them, a film is unique if its premise depends on certain important factors which include – 1) The objective and 2) The subjective. The objective includes the external factors and rests heavily on the laws of probability. A good example of such a situation in the film Scarface would be when the refugees are allowed to visit their relatives in the United States. Another example would be the elements that paved the way for Montana’s rise to becoming a drug kingpin himself.
