I really hope this will get a decent DVD release here in the U.S. I read the book ages ago, and it's fascinating stuff.

Edel's a good director, so I might give this a look.

Variety review:
An explosive performance by Johanna Wokalek gives some relief to an otherwise long and humdrum series of characters, blow-'em-ups and prison locations in German terrorist drama "The Baader Meinhof Complex." Director Uli Edel's and scribe-producer Bernd Eichinger's two-and-a-half-hour look at the tumultuous first decade of the notorious 1960s/'70s Red Army Faction packs in so much material that foreign auds especially won't be able to see the terrorist group for the trees.

saw this last Friday, I have to say it was an entertaining film, but it felt very hamfisted - it was well acted but the script felt slighted in favour for alot of OTT violence.
