About Us

Reel Review features engaging conversations about film and television with interesting folks and USC experts from across disciplines (public policy, governance, theatre, and cinema) to look at visual storytelling, media literacy, diversity, and the public good. Hosted by Erroll Southers, PPR reminds us that film and TV are powerful and passionate mediums that not only entertain, but reflect and comment on our society. Culture, policy, and politics affect our everyday lives, ideas about how we live, and how we live together. It also influences what we watch, as well as what we take away from those programs.We want to be smarter about the images and stories we see, and how we can be better together.Sponsored by:USC Price Video Serviceshttp://www.usc.edu/pvsUSC Bedrosian Centerhttp://bedrosian.usc.eduContent Partners:USC School of Dramatic Artshttps://dramaticarts.usc.edu/USC School of Cinematic-Artshttps://cinema.usc.eduRecorded at the USC Sol Price School of Public Policyhttp://priceschool.usc.edu

Latest Episodes

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote (dir. Terry Gilliam)

We were intrigued at the idea of a retelling of the Cervantes classic Don Quixote, and from acclaimed filmmaker Terry Gilliam. With a film within the film, the work could be a tale of the quixotic nature of storytelling and the medium of film. It could be a tale of madness and exile, of hope and illusion. Join host Erroll Southers and guests Alex Ago, Ange-Marie Hancock Alfaro, and Jonathan Schwartz as they try to piece together the end result of Gilliam's 25+ years of work.

Better Off Dead (1985 - dir. Savage Steve Holland)

The film world is a completely different universe than it was when Better off Dead came out in August 1985. "Savage" Steve Holland's film about a jilted nerd, skiing, and the foreign exchange student who saves him, is perhaps the quintessential cult teen film of the 80s. Is this a case of hindsight isn't so Pretty in Pink, or does it stand some of the tests of time?

Rhymes for Young Ghouls (2013 - dir. Jeff Barnaby)

Rhymes for Young Ghouls, written and directed by Jeff Barnaby is set on the Red Crow Mi'g Maq reservation in 1976. It follows 15 year old Aila as she navigates growing up in a country which imposes taxes and violence upon those who wish to preserve heritage, language, and way of living. She must also face the violence & addiction within her family, within her own community. The children of the Crow have a common enemy. The sadistic truancy officer, Popper. Popper torments the children with physical and psychological violence if they remain "truant." Rhymes is a heist film, a revenge film, a coming of age film, and possibly one of the most relevant for policy films we've discussed on the podcast. If you haven't seen the movie, beware,this conversation has a ton of spoilers. We highly recommend watching - it's streaming on multiple platforms. Host Jonathan Schwartz is joined by Chris Finley andAubrey Hicks. Find us on Twitter: @BedrosianCenter,@AubreyHi, @NDNCinema, @jonHLYP, @USCPric...
