How Accurate Is ‘The Polka King’? Netflix’s True Crime Movie Tells An Unbelievable Tale

It seems as if Netflix is now releasing a new high profile film every other day, and their latest is one of their most star-studded efforts yet. The Polka King (writer/director Maya Forbes) stars Jack Black, Jenny Slate, Jason Schwartzman, Jacki Weaver, Vanessa Bayer, and J. B. Smoove, and tells the true story of Jan Lewan; a Polish-American polka musician who notoriously served prison time for running a ponzi scheme. But how accurate is The Polka King?

As far as Hollywood biopics go, the film is pretty accurate. The idea for the movie — and its main source of research — came from a 2009 documentary about Lewan’s life called The Man Who Would Be Polka King (co-producer Rebekah Rutkoff), according to Deadline, which was directed by Joshua Brown and John Mikulak. The documentary contains a wealth of information about Lewan’s

Netflix’s New, True-Crime Series ‘Rotten’ Reveals the Food World’s Grossest Secrets

Streaming leviathan Netflix hasn’t skimped on true crime as it has upped its output of original content. But for all the immersive intrigue surrounding Making a Murderer, The Keepers, and its other other episodic docu-series, crime-based reality shows remain primarily a voyeuristic pleasure — true stories and topics that, while scintillating, are still far removed from our daily lives. The danger and the atrocities are kept at a safe distance. The events don’t involve us directly.

Everything Coming to Netflix in 2018 That We Can’t Wait to See

There are several reasons to get excited about 2018. For one, it’s not 2017, which we all can agree has been an absolute dumpster fire.

From intriguing sci-fi films to reboots and a slew of comedy specials, Netflix is coming for your free time in 2018—and it will probably get it.
