This article considers what happens when audiences as well as texts become globally mobile. Based on my experience as migrant Australian living in the United Kingdom, this article explores how geographic relocation reshaped my reception of the classic Australian film Crocodile Dundee (Faiman 1986). Through detailed critical self-reflection or what John Fiske refers to as ‘theoretically structured introspection’ (1990: 85), this transnational textual experience is framed here through processes of contesting and reorienting cultural taste, national identity and social belonging, and phenomenological perception.
