Talk to Me - Criticism over inaccuracies - Netflix

The film has been criticized for allegedly not being true to the details of his life and career and for inventing incidents and rearranging locations, such as Petey's appearance on The Tonight Show, which never actually took place. Greene's surviving family members did not cooperate with the making of the film and criticized it for taking liberties with his portrayal and those around him, such as showing Dewey Hughes giving a moving eulogy at Petey's wake, when in reality Hughes did not even attend the funeral. In response to these criticisms, producer Joe Fries responded that the film was merely “inspired by” Greene and not a factual recounting of his life.
