• SPUTNIK (no spoilers)

    In 1983 in the U.S.S.R., a returning astronaut is found to be in a
    strange and perilous state of health. The Russian sci-fi horror SPUTNIK
    is interesting as retrospective on the country's social and political
    recent past. And, except for an awkward English dubbing, its production quality is pretty much up to modern standards. Unfortunately, what
    novelty its story offers isn't pursued where no man has gone before.
    Only somewhat recommended.

    In space no one can hear you snore.

    Well, it was under 90 minutes ...hardly enough to break a wheeze. And historians might enjoy the depiction of soulless pre-Putin bleakness.
