My Own Private Idaho (1991)
The German text recited by Hans during his hotel room performance is taken directly from the journal of Dr. Mabuse read by Prof. Baum in his study.
The "Scott and Bob" subplot is an Oregon retelling of "Hal and Falstaff"'s story, with several visual references to Orson Welles' interpretation.
The final scene in the film, made a little more benign--and on an Idaho road.
On the rooftop when Mike is waking up and Bob is returning to the city with Budd, Matt Dillon's voice from this movie can be heard on a television in the distance.
