A few months ago, I read the synopsis of a movie showing at one of my favorite theaters, Landmark E Street downtown, called The Baader Meinhof Complex, a subtitled German film. I remember it being a movie set in 1970s Germany about a Red Army faction, and the online summary had words like “fascism”, “German democracy”,”American Imperialism”, “radicalized children of the Nazi generation”. For some reason, those words turned me off from running out to see it as soon as possible, so I never got around to it.
I ended up going to bed after 1 am totally satisfied by my movie experience. Probably one of the best movies I’ve seen in the past 10 years. Now if only America would make one.
