Gehirn und Gedudel: Warum die Fußball-Europameisterschaft das Leben verlängert, der Musikantenstadl aber nicht

Das menschliche Gehirn kennt viele Wege sich einzurichten, im Alltag und im Fernsehsessel. Wie kein anderes ist es dazu fähig, aus neuen Erfahrungen Erinnerungen zu machen und Können zu erwerben. Dafür zahlen wir jedoch den Preis, dass uns vieles zur Wiederholung wird. Kulturelle Ereignisse können so Neuheitswert haben, aber auch als Alltagsgedudel durch die Finger des Gedächtnisses rinnen, und es gibt kein Argument dafür, dass das eine oder das andere "gehirngerechter" ist.

Sample text

Dazu eine Notiz von Ivo Ritzer (über Premingers Where the Sidewalk Ends): »Durch die urbanen mean streets selbst scheint […] eine frontier zwischen Zivilisation und Barbarei zu laufen. «34 Die Noir-Stadt mit ihren harten Licht/Schatten-Kontrasten unterstreicht unentwegt, wie sehr der Protagonist in Zusammenhänge verstrickt ist, die er weder beherrscht noch durchschaut. Sie betont das Konfuse, Verlorene, Deformierte der Situation und weist zugleich auf das Doppelbödige der Erzählung. Die große Stadt, so Michael Sellmann, »ist nicht dazu da, um ihre Schönheit zu zeigen; sie ist nur vorhanden, um die Menschen in ihr zu bedrohen.

Films noirs bieten stets auch kritische Skizzen über eine Welt, die aus den Fugen ist: in Deutschland in den 1920er, in Frankreich in den 1930er und in den USA in den späten 1940er, frühen 1950er und 1970er Jahren. Schon Carnés Le jour se lève zeigt Frankreich in der Zeit, als die Volksfront, die viele Hoffnungen bündelte, vor dem Zusammenbruch stand.

Nutzlose, verlorene Helden sind sie allesamt, Gescheiterte, lebende Tote. 2. Fesseln der Vergangenheit Nahe Verwandte dieser Verlorenen sind die Unsicheren, die Instabilen, die ihre Vergangenheit nicht vergessen können. Sie haben etwas falsch gemacht: das Gesetz übertreten, ein Versprechen gebrochen, einen Freund betrogen oder im Stich gelassen, oft bereits vor langer Zeit, und kommen von den Erfahrungen, die sie da machen mussten, tragischerweise nicht mehr los. Die einen verstecken sich und grübeln passiv vor sich hin.
