I rarely read movie reviews and I suspect that most people who write a review of Ben Stein’s documentary Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed probably could have written it based on their personal bias before ever seeing the movie. This review at Screen Rant seems to be an exception to the rule though and is worth reading.
The thing that most intrigued me about the film was not so much the film itself but the reaction of the audience to movie.
About one-third of the way through, I noticed that everyone in the theater was very and unusually attentive to the movie. Once the movie started no one left their seats until it ended and the usual side talk and other distractions associated with movie-going was noticeably absent. All eyes, as far as I could tell, were completely focused on the documentary.
When the movie ended, their was the briefest pause, during which time no one got up from their seats, and I heard something I have not heard in a movie theater since I was a child — applause.
Spontaneous audience wide applause.
Go see it.
