Last night I had the opportunity to take in The Baader Meinhof Complex with some friends at Portland, OR’s gorgeous Hollywood Theater. The film is about the Red Army Faction, also known as the Baader–Meinhof Group. The group carried out a series of terrorist attacks on the West German government and the U.S. military in Germany in the 1970s and 80s. The film focuses on the first generation of the group, while touching upon the “Commando” groups that followed. It gives a balanced account of the limitations of political terrorism, while never letting imperialism and war off the hook.
