Well, we're back to square one. Where did I go wrong, the kissing up or the eating crow part?

Killer, non-blockbuster (they can't all be, and shouldn't all be, box office smashes - there has to be room for really good small films) movie. Apparently a lot of watchers of this film spent a lot of viewing time yawning or chatting because most of their complaints are addressed in the course of the film.
This isn't a high concept story. It doesn't need explosions and chest beating, flash and deafening sounds to keep your attention.
Scary if you think about it. Horrifying if you keep up with rare botanicals and disease.
Absolutely last note as to the film's worthiness ... Sean Connery.
