I've always loved to watch Bob Ross paint on tv, during the 90's. It's his soothing voice, his positivity and how easy it all looks. The paintings themselves are not my cup of tea, but they're very well made. I'm not at all surprised that there's an evil company (in this case the Kowalski's that own Bob Ross Inc) behind all the Bob Ross products since his death. That's almost always the case. They strike up all the millions and people like his son Steve get nothing.
That being said: these kind of documentaries clearly have an agenda and want to get their message through. It's a stage for one party to have their say, in this case that of Steve Ross. And while I think he's right: it's one side of the story and the film makes you want to get angry at the Kowalski's.
As a documentary it's an entertaining film and it's interesting to see how Bob's career started and how he became tremendously successful.
