Der Baader-Meinhof Komplex

With a recommendation from the Armchair Generalist, the TwShiloh team checked out ‘Der Baader Meinhof Komplexthis weekend and were mightily impressed.  I remember the ‘wanted’ posters back when I was stationed in (West) Germany back in the late ’80s but by that time the group’s glory days were behind it.

I seem to recall these everywhere on base...

The movie depicts a group that lacks any sort of cohesive raison d’etre other than a obsession other then their next tactical move.  It’s not a perfect movie but given the rather weak field of films dealing with terrorism, it’s definitely worth a watch.
