CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on February 17th, reviewing “Downfall: The Case Against Boeing,” a new documentary that made its debut at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, and is streaming on Netflix beginning February 18th.

The film is directed by Rory Kennedy, the youngest daughter of Robert F. Kennedy. In 2018, a Lion Airlines flight in Jakarta, Indonesia, mysteriously crashed into the sea shortly after takeoff. One year later, an Ethiopian Airliner did a similar dive into the earth. The commonality for both these crashes was the 737 Max, a best selling plane from the Boeing corporation. In a step by step exposé on the history of Boeing and the manufacture of the 737 Max, Kennedy unearths both the flaw in the plane and in its business model.
