Say hello to my new little friend: The Los Angeles Film Festival. From June 19-29, the audience is king in Westwood, with Hellboy, hipsters, and hotties by the pool. The hottest ticket for me, is the night of Swear-A-Long Scarface at the Ford Ampitheatre – June 20, 8:30PM.
Two-hundred-and-twenty-six. That’s how many times Al Pacino, in his iconic role as Miami gangster Tony Montana, and his fellow cast members say — ahem — well, drop the F-bomb. Two-hundred-and-twenty-six times. And that’s just one word. There’s plenty of other creative cursing in Scarface, Brian De Palma’s coked-out opera of raw emotions and foul language, as well as some of the most quotable lines of the ’80s. So if you’ve got this movie memorized, don’t miss this opportunity to curse under the stars alongside fellow fans and their “little friends.”
How awesome is this? Seriously. With stuff like this going on, how can anyone not love this town?
