The Baader-Meinhof Complex by Stephan Aust

A scene from the movie: I strongly encourage you to check it out.

I just finished the Baader-Meinhof by Stefan Aust, an interesting and sometimes fascinating story, yet it lacks much analysis or real conclusion. A lot of unsubstantiated rumors fill the last few pages, causing the reader to question to whole affair. Not the comprehensive history I was expecting.

The book follows the historically accurate movie the Baader-Meinhof Complex, just released in the US on DVD, It is a fascinating movie, from the people behind Der Untertag (Downfall). I am curious what will be the next movie from these folks.

Check out the American Poster. Designed by the same people that did the famous Obama poster:
