post-modernism is putting in a load of references to things that people don't get. quentin tarantino has really random camera shots he loves just because he admires a bunch of weird spaghetti western directors, and the average viewer obviously can't pick up on that. so tarantino is the new joyce. in 100 years tarantino's films will require 10 years of study to even begin to understand fully and nobody will have watched them. they'll be universally hated as wanky, obnoxious films. pulp fiction will be the new ulysses.
