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

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.

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.
