Occasionally I see a film about which I cannot stop thinking. It's rare, but the German movie "The Baader-Meinhof Complex," by director Uli Edel, is one of them. I saw it a couple weeks ago, but this taut, moving exploration of modern, urban terrorism was both a proper history lesson for me, and a deft explication of how solidarity among radicals and zealots simply cannot last. Early in the film, is a massive riot scene that equals the cattle drive in Red River in terms of focus, scope and pure pandemonium. Wonderful stuff, and if you liked "The Lives of Others" from a few years back, this is a political drama very much in the same vein. I loved it.
