written by Oliver Stone, based on a screenplay by Ben Hecht and Howard Hawks and a novel by Armitage Trail
Tony Montana: Are you a Communist huh? How you like it? They tell you all the time what to do, what to think, what to feel. You wanna be like a sheep, like all those other people man, baa baa. You wanna work hey, ten fucking hours. You own nothing. You got nothing. You wanna chivato on every corner man, looking after you, watching everything you do, everything you say man. You know I eat octopus three times a day. I got fucking octopus coming out of my fucking ears man. I got the fucking Russian shoes, my feets coming through. How you like that? What you want me to do, stay there and do nothing? I'm no fucking criminal. I'm no puta thief. Iím Tony Montana a political prisoner from Cuba and I want my fucking human right, now. Just like the president Jimmy Carter says.
