Automatic Fitness #

Released 2/9/2015

Description: Automatic Fitness is a laberyntic poetry on the human automatism. A reflection about our everyday relationship with cash and time. It's an animated tragicomedy which plays with the idea of an all permeating acceleration. It is about the stranglehold of daily madness and the automatisms, in which we are forced to live, work, breathe, think and: exist.

The Gold Bug Reviews:

The first time I saw it I was very entertained by the mysterious storyline and creepy characters. I saw this well-made Poe adaptation either in high school or late in elementary school, I can't remember which. Actually that I'm interested in movie scores I wish to see it again not only for the perfect acting and storyline but also for the electronic sound-track.


Nice tale, especially for older children, although the movie does have few startling moments, and death claims two of the treasure seekers. Captain Kidd's treasure, supposedly buried on Sullivans Island, is pursued by Roberts Blossom and Anthony Michael Hall, along with Blossom's servant, Geoffrey Holder. The clues to the cache's whereabouts are deciphered and the digging begins. After the chest is found, a curse is unleashed, with tragic results. Roberts Blossom is really nice here, so if you are an admirer of this underused actor, seek out "The Gold Bug". It is not an simple film to get, but worth the effort. - MERK


A lonesome boy, who finds solace in studying the insect life on a desert island, stumbles upon adventurers seeking Captain Kidd's buried treasure. Modest, likable, evocative (lensed by cinematographer Alex Thomson) and quite faithful rendition of Edgar Allan Poe's atypical pirate yarn; not exactly horror material, then, but the adventurers here do receive to meet a sticky (albeit unfortunately offscreen) end – apparently meted out by the vengeful ghost of the notorious sea captain! Or, at least, that is the method I remember it from my childhood days of poring over it (and many other abridged literary classic) as part of a pocket ebook illustrated collection of Poe short stories. The movie stars Roberts Blossom as the older of the two gold diggers and the child is well played by Anthony Michael Hall; the another two necessary roles in the storyline of Blossom's black companion and the boy's stern uncle are, respectively, filled by Geoffrey Holder and Robert Moberley. It is curious that, for all of the tale's cinematic possibilities, there has never been a notable movie ver of it; I am purposely discounting W. Lee Wilder's very loose modern would-be adaptation MANFISH (1956) – which I might receive to watch regardless as part of my ongoing Halloween marathon. For the record, the TV series which spawned it was one that exclusively dealt with adapting famous children's ebooks to the tiny screen.
