Netflix rental The Baader Meinhof Complex: this film left us speechless until we HAD to talk about it. The good: best historical drama ever on the 1960s/70s, everything down to the last extra almost out of scene is perfect, the casting spot on, the look, authentic. It brought back tons of memories of our own university years and all the student anti-Vietnam war demonstrations we both saw; the bad: what is showed-- the birth of modern terrorism via true believer fanatics morphing into their purported enemies, becoming immoral murderers. If you want to understand Evil but can't identify with today's illiterate desert nomads and third world, enraged urban boys raised on pure hatred and misogyny, watch the degeneration of these educated young European men and women from valid protesters into full time killers.
