Download PDF by Georg Seeßlen: Filmwissen: Thriller: Grundlagen des populären Films (German

By Georg Seeßlen

Der Autor verfolgt das style von seinen Anfängen (Das Kabinett des Dr. Caligari, , M- eine Stadt sucht einen Mörder) über den movie noir bis hin zum Schweigen der Lämmer, Illuminati und Shutter Island und zeigt was once die Faszination des Genres ausmacht, welche Ängste und welche Hoffnungen es im Zuschauer auslöst und welchen Blick auf die Gesellschaft die Verbrecherjagd erlaubt.

Wie eigentlich jedes Filmgenre, wie jede "ordentliche" Geschichte, handelt der mystery von Leidenschaft, von intercourse und von Verbrechen, allgemeiner: von Grenzverletzungen innerhalb der gesellschaftlichen Regelungen. Doch anders als zum Beispiel im Gangsterfilm dient hier das Verbrechen nicht (oder doch nur in sehr neurotischer Weise) einem "sozialen Aufstieg über die Hintertreppe", und anders als zum Beispiel im Detektivfilm dient seine Aufklärung nicht dem gesellschaftlichen Konsens, ja das Verbrechen und seine Ahndung dienen, so scheint es zunächst, im mystery sehr oft zu überhaupt nichts. Das Verbrechen ist weder vom Ursprung noch vom Ziel her eindeutig zu fassen, es wirkt eher wie das Zeichen für eine viel tiefer gehende Beunruhigung: Regeln und Gesetze werden da nicht so sehr verletzt oder umgangen, sondern gerade durch Übererfüllung oder durch die perfekteste Aufrechterhaltung des "schönen Scheins" advert absurdum geführt. Die Anpassung an tatsächliche oder gedachte Größen, weniger die Erfüllung eines Bedürfnisses als die einer Rolle, führt zur Gewalt. Am Ende von PSYCHO wissen wir, was once mit Norman Bates und der seltsamen Liebe zu seiner Mutter geworden ist; es klingt vernünftig, used to be uns der Psychologe da erzählt, und doch beginnt hier die schreckliche Verlängerung dieses "Falls" in unser Alltagsleben hinein, und kein Sherlock Holmes wäre da, durch seine clarification die völlige Normalität des Vernünftigen wiederherzustellen.
In einem mystery steht das Verbrechen selbst, nicht seine Aufklärung, nicht seine Motivation, nicht seine decision im Vordergrund.
