The Baader Meinhof Complex, a 2008 German film about the notorious  terrorist organization responsible for a number of bombings and armed robberies carried out in opposition to the policies of the United States and its West European allies, can be streamed online over Netflix, rented from many video stores (to the extent you can still find one), or purchased over the internet, for example, from Amazon.com. It is actually fairly easy to find, and inexpensive to purchase.

A very well-produced film The Baader Meinhof Complex is presented in a realistic manner, with the characters accurately depicted and without any hyperbole.  The formal name of the group was the Red Army Faction, but was routinely labeled in the media and by governments and research centers under the names of the two founders, Ulrike Meinhof and Andreas Baader.
