Looks good. There's a special screening at the ICA in November no idea when it comes out proper though.

"Rooted in the German student movement of the late 1960s, the Baader Meinhof group or the Red Army Faction turned to terrorism in the early 70s to fight against perceived imperialism and the lingering spectre of the Nazis. Stefan Aust, former editor of Der Spiegel and one of Germany's most respected journalists, co-wrote the controversial new film The Baader Meinhof Complex and the book of the same name. He comes to the ICA to talk about the enduring significance of Baader Meinhof, and our continued fascination with their campaign. Aust will be in conversation with Neal Ascherson, former Central European correspondent for The Observer and the author of Black Sea"

IMDB says it comes out 14th November here.  I hope somewhere by me shows it.  A couple of places are showing GOMORRAH (saw it the other night  ::)) so there's a decent chance I guess.

It's deffo a November release - saw the trailer at the cinema the other day; this looks great and it's hard to believe that something as seriously good as this looks is directed by the guy that made the Madonna stinker, BODY OF EVIDENCE  :-\
