At Home He's a Tourist

He fills his head with culture/ He gives himself an ulcer.

James Bowman has a good article on Kill Bill: Vol. 1. "Those who love this kind of movie love it because it is the cinematic equivalent of abstract painting — well, that and the fact that it gives them a chance to compete with each other by showing how many of its non-stop allusions to otherwise forgotten junk cinema they recognize. They are such dedicated movie-lovers that they naturally love it for being all movie, and having no messy, distracting connections to the world of flesh and blood. I mean actual flesh and blood, of course, not the movie kind whose promiscuous spraying about the set is one of the picture’s most egregious features."
