Downfall: The Case Against Boeing
Director: Rory Kennedy
Year Released: 2022
Documentarian Kennedy reviews the recent problems with "well-respected" American plane manufacturer Boeing ... and specifically the crashes of Lion Air Flight 610 in 2018 (out of Jakarta) and Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in 2019 (out of Addis Ababa) that went down, which led the company to blame "pilot error" when that simply wasn't the case. She gives a breakdown of Boeing's beginnings and proud legacy before pointing the finger at new management - after the merger with the McDonnell Douglas Corporation - for shifting focus on stock growth over measly little things like safety. It's a very factual and workman-like presentation, but it's also extremely repetitive - around half way through, we get the idea: bow to the feet of Wall Street and this is what might happen.
