On the latest Find Your Film episode we have three first rate movies to recommend. “The Penny Black” and “Undine” are new movies and “The Abominable Dr. Phibes,” headlined by Vincent Price, is a cult classic. Check out the audio and video versions of our FYF podcast below!

“The Penny Black” is described as a “non-fiction investigative thriller” about Will Cassayd-Smith, a Los Angeles resident who agrees to hold onto a million dollar stamp collection that is owned by his mysterious neighbor Roman. Several years later, Will is still trying to find Roman, and the documentary also explores the veracity behind the stamp story.
I doubt if “The Penny Black” is actually a documentary, and that is a sentiment shared by co-host Bruce Purkey. That said, this feature is worth a look since the story is pretty outrageous. Director Joe Saunders delivers a no-frills approach to the proceedings. By the end of the feature don’t be surprised if you’re still thinking about who is conning who in this ultimately immersive narrative. For updates on Will’s story, check out “The Penny Black’s” official site.
Listen to our latest episode on Libsyn:
Filmmaker Christian Petzold’s latest movie “Undine” captivated us as well. Petzold reunites with his “Transit” collaborators Paula Beer and Franz Rogowski in this intimate story about a love affair with a literal undercurrent of emotion. Beer and Rogowski are fantastic in their respective roles as passionate lovers attempting to find solace and romance in Berlin. The movie is now out in theaters, VOD, and Digital platforms.
