New Faces was a musical revue with songs and comedy skits tied together by a quirky plot. It ran on Broadway for nearly a year in 1952 and was then made into a motion picture in 1954. It helped jump start the careers of several young performers including Paul Lynde, Alice Ghostley, Eartha Kitt, Carol Lawrence, performer/writer Mel Brooks (as Melvin Brooks), and lyricist Sheldon Harnick. The film was basically a reproduction of the stage revue with a thin plot added. The plot involved a producer and performer (Ronny Graham) in financial trouble and is trying to stave off an angry creditor long enough to open his show. A wealthy Texan offers to help out, on the condition that his daughter be in the show.
Writer:Ronny Graham (sketches mostly by), Mel Brooks (sketches mostly by), Paul Lynde (additional sketches), Luther Davis (additional sketches), John Clevela
A filmed performance (in CinemaScope) of the highly popular Broadway hit that was basically a collection of skits, sketches, songs and dances built around a flimsy plot to meld them all ... . You can read more in Google, Youtube, Wiki

"hey, there is seismic activity everywhere so it must not be because of fracking..." and saying that the local governments are handling/reviewing all the proper oversight and regulation is laughable. McAleer NEVER addressed the real exceptions/loophole that franking hides from the Clean Water Act. And the final scene, "he won't talk to me so therefore I am right" is HUGELY failing argument and only knobs will fall for this crap movie. Sorry for everyone who donated, even though 10% did come from industry sources. I am suspect of it all and would love to hear where the genesis idea and backing really came from and I think he is really hiding behind the money raised on Kirkstart. This is right out of the 'fight truth with lies' subversive disinformation playbook. 50% my ass.

Now if you've read the books you understand the idea of the movie. I personally enjoyed this because though many say there was Crappy acting I don't agree. A least 2 of these actors are popular in American tv or film and they are liked. One is also in the CW The Originals. I think those who are reviewing are expecting some American style of action. This isn't an American movie, and like the character Ellie says this doesn't happen there in Australia. If the actors are portraying how people would really act then they've done a good job. I believed it was a bunch of teens having fun and then coming back were in disbelief. If your expecting some kind of Dwyane Johnson, or Jason Bourne type movies that are based solely on action of booms, and shootings, then this wouldn't be your movie. This is a narrative movie not a action packed boob popping entertainment.

Joseph C (kr) wrote: I love the form of this piece. It's content is relatively banal. In terms of form, beginning with the end credits, then the finale of the film, slowly moving forward into the past, I think this film is rather interesting. I do enjoy the radical change that gradually takes place from the opening, horrific and labyrinthine journey through an S & M club to the final, swirling and vertiginous "ending" at the park. The film is certainly deeply unsettling. Most difficult to watch, I think, was the now infamous, completely static and unflinching sodomy -- the film literally stops here, in every sense of the word. Very upsetting. I could not watch that scene in its entirety, and skipped over about half of it. The reality of rape is, indeed, a traumatizing and shattering experience. But, I think the representation of trauma can be realized without, as is the case here, simply being itself traumatic. The conclusion is stirring, but the allegretto from Beethoven's seventh symphony can make almost anything poignant. So, it was a worthy effort, but with themes and forms addressed in far superior ways by other films, I think.
