Powerful film, definitely an eye-opening experience!
"The BMC" is a German film, crafted by Uli Edel which is actually based off of a nonfiction novel by Stefan Aust. This movie shows just how a nonviolent protest can turn into a major movement of massive destruction.
The just of the beginning of the end is that German police and other affiliates attacked several protesters which resulted in a young man's death. His death sparked a revolt, an uprising if you will that led several passionate rebels to do everything in their power to expose the truth.
Meinhof, is a journalist that has been writing about troubles within the world for some time and has
gotten pretty popular for expressing her views. This is a significant character in the story because she not only chronicles the events of several like-minded individuals, she becomes active in the fight, trading her pen for guns. I'm sure this happens for a lot of journalist and writers, they research the cause and become so firmly rooted in it's content that they crossover into the darkness.
Badder and Gruden are the two masterminds which form the original group of RAF members "Red Army Faction" and take on the wrongs within the government. They along with several RAF members organize and carryout robberies, explosions and political situations to get their point across to the government...That is until they are caught and placed into prison without any idea of release or hope in sight.
Once the key players have all been arrested, a 2nd generation of RAF members comes into the fray and have some radical ideas on how to get their comrades out of jail. We witness everything from car bombings to kidnappings and death to freedom, in this amazing film. The struggle to maintain sanity and express one's opinion is the prize they are all seeking to claim at the end of their journey. But isn't that what we all want? Freedom of choice, freedom to choose what happens in the world around us?
It's watching films like this that remind you of how lucky we are to live in the U.S. Even though the picture is not as clear as it could be over here, it could always be worse. But essentially we could be in the same state of turmoil, if we continue on the dangerous path that we're on. What Meinoff and her people have done is take a stand against the falsehoods of the government. and rewrite history. You really need to see this movie to understand the dynamics of how everyone's position melts together.
"The Baader Meinoff Complex" is a quality film that shows just how real things can get when the government uses deadly force on the people that it's suppose to protect and serve. Unhinged Reviews recommends this film for any liberal, college student or lover of quality indie films.
