"Starbuck Holger Meins" is a German movie from almost 15 years ago and it is not the first film by writer and director Gerd Conradt on the subject of Holger Meins. He made another documentary 20 years earlier when Meins hadn't been dead already for 10 years. Anyway, most people probably don't even know the man that this 90-minute documentary is about. Baader, Meinhof and maybe Ensslin are much more well-known than Meins, but he was at least as dedicated as the other names I just mentioned as he died from the results of a hunger strike while in prison. I think this was an interesting little movie and I am sure that it will teach something new to almost everybody with an interest in the years of radical left-extreme terrorism in the FRG. I must say I was not too familiar with anybody of the people interviewed in here (except Langhans), but this was not a problem at all as pretty much all of them had something interesting to say about the subject of Meins and the political context in general. I recommend the watch. Thumbs up and I am really surprised why this film has such a low rating here on IMDb.
