Heiner Muller, on Disney’s Fantasia

What frightens me with this film, is its way to block my imagination with prefabricated images, clichés that I later probably never will get rid of. It is a way of grafting me with images to defy experience, to prevent me from experiencing anything. If you immediately transcribe music to images, then you will never reach into the structures of the music. I.e. you will experience it totally one-dimensional. A metaphor is never reducible, you can not shrink it to fit into one single signification, and these images of the Disney movie are so simple that they instantly turn allegoric, i.e. can get reduced to a meaning.
