Co-directors Heather Walsh and David Sington handle the material deftly, creating a fascinating and often infuriating true story of space age misogyny in a by-the-numbers documentary from Netflix. It’s a fascinating true tale, peppered with archival footage and modern-day interviews, and whilst it breaks no new ground in terms of documentary film-making, the story and interviewees are strong enough to engage throughout.
