Egor Abramenko’s debut picked up two nominations
"A supremely confident 1980s-set sci-fi refrigerated with elements of a Soviet-era thriller and scares straight out of Alien"
"Sputnik's genre pleasures are modest, but like the best sci-fi, it gets you thinking"
"Strong performances, strikingly spare production design and somber cinematography convey a sense of something important going on. That's no small achievement in what proves to be a creature feature with flair"
