Critic Reviews for Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich Season 1

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (20)

There's a bigger, broader story to be told about Epstein, his web of secrets, the network of the rich and powerful and the ways that money corrupts. That will be a knockout. For now, "Filthy Rich" is a good start.

The series is eminently watchable, and enraging. But it comes no closer to unraveling Epstein than any previous reportorial attempts have managed.

With too much time and too little to say, "Filthy Rich" squanders the opportunity to do the same.

Filthy Rich is a good enough starting point if you know little about Jeffrey Epstein, but it doesn't crack anything open. The best thing the documentary does is let you hear from the survivors directly.

In the end, I don't feel like I learned anything from Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich beyond horrific details.

May 25, 2020 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

The documentary series, while well made, is difficult to watch.

May 21, 2020 | Full Review…

They tell their stories boldly and more, but what truly resonates throughout the four-part documentary is the complicity of government agencies and officials...

Jun 29, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The testimony from some of Epstein's underage-at-the-time victims is brave and compelling, but Filthy Rich feels like a strange mixture, simultaneously salacious and dull.

Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich is an extremely important testament to one of the most sinister sexual predators in history. While we watch it, it is impossible not to experience a roller coaster of emotions: disgust... [Full review in Spanish]

Jun 25, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Filthy Rich, which documents the crimes of alleged molester Jeffrey Epstein, is a four-part nightmare that will probably be aggravating if not triggering for a lot of people...

Jun 22, 2020 | Full Review…

Epstein's horrible acts are fit for the 'true crime' formula by Netflix. And this series guarantees a full exposure, even when we realize it could have been better. [Full review in Spanish].

I almost understand now the concept of closure.

Audience Reviews for Jeffrey Epstein: Filthy Rich: Season 1

    Is this topic a hard watch, yes. Will it be triggering for some people, yes. Do I like watching Law and Order: SVU, yes. Will this cover more than the new does, most certainly. The news, if you are lucky spends only seconds at a time on one topic. This docuseries gives a brief history and tells you who are his collaborators. Show you how this filthy rich man operated and found accomplices to perpetuate his depraved acts. I find this series a good way to summarize, and it's just a summary, of who he is and how he got to where he did and what he did. It also focuses in on the people he targeted and how it happened. It does briefly talks about the psychology of how such a thing could happen and I did wish to delve deeper into the how and why on both sides of the equation but that is just a personal preference. Overall I learned a lot more than I would on a short news segment. Very interesting docuseries.

    A very compelling documentary. Some criticize it for not telling us much new about Epstein. I disagree. It reveals the scale of his crimes to be more extensive than most people may realize. Even more important, it delves into the stories of many of his victims as much as it does into his own. In fact, since we don't see him talking at all except for a few non-revealing deposition questions and answers, we see, hear and even learn more about the victims' manipulation by him, ongoing trauma, vindication and in some cases relief and strength more than we learn about him. Lots of question about him remain unanswered by the documentary, but it's nonetheless powerful stuff well worth viewing even if parts are quite disturbing.

    If you're into disturbing crap like Law & Order SVU, then you may like this, but if you're looking to find out: 1.) How Epstein got all that money; 2.) What happened to the girlfriend who helped him rape underage girls; or 3.) Any facts relating to his death whatsoever; then watching this docuseries is a complete waste of time. It's just a bunch of detailed descriptions of how he raped girls, which, for any person with any empathy, is not enjoyable to watch at all.

    Talk about a sick man who had too much money and power. The documentary was well put together, however the ending sucks as everyone knows. There is no happy ending for anyone involved. Epstein's death allowed him to get away without paying any kind of damages to the thousands of females that he molested and trafficked. Unless some kind of R. Kelly type of videos come out, he's gotten away with it by committing suicide/getting murdered in jail. Since he changed his will days before his death, he transferred all of his money outside of the United States, therefore it would be difficult to seize all of it unless maybe a class action suit of the thousands of females were to sue his estate?

    As a survivor of abuse myself, I feel this documentary was bland and withholding. While any sane, empathetic person should feel empathy for the survivors we learn about in these 4 episodes, you might also get the impression that the most important aspects of this case are being hidden from the public. The documentary was lazy, evasive, without the real storytelling grit, emotion, and dialogue that a case like this would automatically produce. As painful and horrible as the Jeffrey Epstein story is, the documentary did as poor a job telling survivor stories as Epstein and the federal government did when ignoring them for so long. Any person with common sense and internet access knows there are deep layers to this abusive, sex scandal that borders on demonic behavior - and all of that seems to be purposefully left out. Who are they protecting? Where are the grotesque images and artwork that was found in JE's home on the Island, Florida and Manhattan - or at least a mention of them? The episodes are so boring and of such low quality I'm left feeling like it was created for the sole purpose of closing this chapter for the public questions, outrage, and curiosity more than it was about helping these survivors get the truth out there. People like Bill Clinton and royal family members and many more have since then turned up in documents online that make this documentary look like a Disney cartoon. There are a lot of high profile people with ties to this sex trafficking ring, and some of the children are said to be as young as 4 years old. Telling the truth is hard, especially when child abuse, rape, and sadistic systemic horrors of child trafficking led by the rich & politically powerful are a part of that story - but that's more reason we should know. But why bother making the documentary if they're just going to let all of these people get a pass? This is especially true for JE's evil heavily involved wife & partner - She is the worst - and she's somewhere surviving wealthy, living her life like she didn't do anything to hurt these people. Amazing. Too many people were spared being outed, yet these women will be scarred forever. This 4-part doc is a superficial version of what really happened and probably still happening, therefore making it a waste of time. Only JE is dead, but he was obviously connected to some very high profile criminals - so high that the Feds tried to fix his case. And that's all you got? 4 dragging episodes of air fluff mixed with the horrors the women went through. Perhaps one episode would have sufficed for their stories.

    This show gives the survivors a great platform to share their stories and portray Epstein as the monster he was however it does not delve enough into Epstein's powerful network which means it really doesn't add much value to the Epstein. Best way to put great attempt but the lawyers have got hold of this one
  • Jun 10, 2020
    From the beginning it is a solely narrated and visually monotonous program. It is an "I remember" back and forth collection of unfortunate circumstances. The hopeful intrigue behind Epstein's wealth is unsatisfying and lackluster. More than anything if not only, this miniseries lays out a detailed blueprint to the behaviors of a criminally pathetic old pervert. This is not a series for sleuths or true crime fans but rather those who are the guardians of or are the young women in need of the truth some shadows hold. The story is told as a painfully uninteresting chronological timeline of a nasty individual and his victims. In the end let "Filthy Rich" be a billboard for the criminal vale that some wealthy and powerful people use to cover the insular community those create with bribery and blackmail. Production wise, it was poorly executed to boot. Disgrace the ineffectiveness of the parole/prison system for ‘well-off' criminals. Bless the bravery of the persons willing to come forward for the betterment of society and the preparedness against sexual predators.

    Se quedaron a la mitad, se van los cuatro episodios en los testimonios de las víctimas, lo cual es muy importante, pero no se indaga casi nada sobre la red social de pedofilos y pervertidos sexuales que lo rodeaba. Y del suicidio "asistido" casi nada, cuando debió ser un escándalo igual de grotesco.
  • Jun 07, 2020
    Intense and extremely frustrating that he got away with what he did. Makes you wonder how many people he blackmailed throughout his life.
  • Jun 07, 2020
    Despite the excellent production quality, the details of the story are quite dragged out.
