The Baader-Meinhoff Complex (Germany: Uli Edel, 2008)

Watched The Baader-Meinhoff Complex (Germany: Uli Edel, 2008) last night and all I can say is ... WOW!!! One of the most intense films I have watched in a long time, I was on the edge of my seat, I'm going to have to watch it again to work out my reaction...

I am glad that I read George Katsiaficas' The Subversion of Politics: European Autonomous Social Movements and the Decolonization of Everyday Life during Christmas break because it prepared me to watch this film with a critical understanding of the place/zeitgeist/people depicted in the film and to deal with the pre-packaged propaganda of the right/left as they position their critiques of the film.
