Clearly, no one involved with “Dirty Money” knew precisely what environment Season 2 of the Netflix documentary series would be dropped into upon release.
After first debuting in early 2018, the intervening 26 months have seen a number of significant financial developments dovetail, some brewing underneath the sociopolitical surface for the entire time and others with a much quicker and more recent onset.
The explicit purpose of the series, produced by prolific documentary filmmaker Alex Gibney, is to illuminate financial malpractice on various levels.
In Season 2, different episodes detail international tales of money laundering, drug trafficking, environmental pollution, and elder abuse, all of which have figures at their centers absorbing a majority of the blame.
Season 2 of “Dirty Money” is available now on Netflix.
