The release of Expelled has generated all sorts of chatter, almost certainly more than it deserves on its merits as a film. It’s also produced repeated mentions of the fact that it’s the eight highest-grossing political documentary of all time– most recently, Tara Smith writing at Correlations.
That claim reminds me of a long-ago student whose application for a summer program described him as a student at “the fifth best university in Florida.” None of the people reading it could come up with four, let alone the fifth. And God knows, I would have a hard time naming seven high-grossing political documentaries.
But maybe I’m just an uncultured moron, so let’s throw this open:
What are the seven highest-grossing political documentaries of all time?
Tara posted a link to the list, but that would be cheating– without looking at the list, how many can you name?
