Critic Reviews for Dirty Money Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (7)

Dirty Money proves its thesis not just by exposing corporations, but also by rendering thoughtful, intimate portraits of individuals whose desire to accumulate wealth has transformed into a terminal kind of myopia.

Jan 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Dirty Money is eminently, compulsively watchable, somehow counterbalancing the heaviness of the subject matter with an undercurrent of urgency and a keen sense of how to keep things entertaining.

Jan 26, 2018 | Full Review…

This personal take, the rage, adds power and poignancy. Who says a documentary needs to be entirely objective?

Dirty Money is the most fun you can have while being pissed off.

Feb 2, 2018 | Full Review…

The installments range from an infuriating look at payday lending to an offbeat story about Canadian maple syrup cartels. The common thread is the abuse of trust.

Jan 25, 2018 | Full Review…

While each film stands on its own, the real weight to Dirty Money comes in viewing them together, providing a series of case studies of unethical or illegal practices challenging the argument that government should, in essence, get out of business's way.

The breath of storytelling here is impressive, and with Gibney shepherding the series, it looks to be a hallmark of Netflix moving forward.

Docu shares disturbing details about corporate greed.

Feb 6, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Armed with a dangerous, even rock star appeal, Dirty Money entertains as well as it informs across its six episodes. But you may need a shower afterward.

Feb 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Directorial styles and esthetics are different from episode to episode, and you might prefer some to others-but every story is worth knowing more about.

Jan 26, 2018 | Rating: 8.8/10 | Full Review…

There is something to be said about getting all this information in one sitting instead of in bits and pieces, and in this Dirty Money delivers.

Jan 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Dirty Money's structure is what makes it unique. Thematically, the episodes don't cheat and each has something to say about the nature of corruption.

    Must see, insights on corrupted system. The only issue is that it is presented as 'USA legal system is saving the world from these corrupted foreign companies'
  • Sep 05, 2019
    Love the topics, the pacing and camera work is kinda slow. There are awkward, maybe hopefully dramatic pauses that I could do without
  • May 31, 2019
    Listening to people talk about how the crooks in the three piece suits rip you off both in complicated and layman's terms, is fascinating. Highly recommend it.
  • Mar 02, 2019
    Great documentary with interesting storytelling thread backed by engaging stakeholders, and well researched facts. Exposing stories that may be otherwise less known to people - intriguing and food for thought for sure.

    I'm glued to the TV! Amazing series, very informative

    What a bunch of garbage. Don't waste your time.
  • Jul 26, 2018
    This docu-series is ambitious and brutal without overly complicating information and at times goes right for the jugular. A true examination of corporate greed, scandal, and the overlooked (and blatant) crimes contributing to the current economic challenges in the world today. Good, bad or indifferent, this series has something that can speak to everyone.
  • Jul 06, 2018
    Find this serial using boxxy software . Already The fourth series is disappointing. 50 minutes about anything.
  • Jul 05, 2018
    they can replace almost all of the programing on tv with shows like this and i will binge watch all damned day!
  • Apr 03, 2018
    EVERY EPISODE HAS A NEW DIRECTOR AND is crafted differently which makes 'Dirty money' a great and infuriating documentary series about companies and people and how they lie, cheat, and steal to make a profit.
