The 10 Highest-Grossing Indie Films of All Time

The 10 Highest-Grossing Indie Films of All Time | Offbeat and Independent Films | Scoop.it
Indie films usually aren't as flashy as big Hollywood productions, but their small budgets mean that big hits are hugely profitable.

For example, do we really think of Quentin Tarantino films as independent at this point? It really comes down to semantics.
