Very underrated movie...
Very under rated movie. Lots of undercurrents in it. At a PBS station, there is a background speaker announcement saying, "Mr. Sagan, your lights are on." There were several versions of this movie. I saw it on cable and it was very good. Several years later, I rented it and the rental version was much changed from the cable version. I was very disappointed in the rental version, only later realized that several scenes were either missing or changed, and not for the better. Perhaps that's why there are such divergent views on this movie.
This happens quite often and many people are not aware there are several versions of movies. HBO and some of the other movie channels make sure to get the released version, but sometimes there is more than one released version.
