My review of The Polka King, for The Tulsa Voice. Starring Jack Black, it’s the crazy true story of a Polish immigrant who turned his dream of building a polka empire into a Ponzi scheme.

Purchased by Netflix following a positive reception at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, The Polka King is the “gonzo account of Jan Lewan’s rise and fall…one of those whoppers in which truth is stranger than fiction.”
