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, Reel Review 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.

The latest to come out of the DC universe is the story of Harley Quinn. Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn ostensibly follows Quinn after her breakup from Puddin' (AKA The Joker) and her struggle to survive as the men she hurt in the past come for revenge.

Margot Robbie gleefully leads the show as the notorious trickster, and is joined by a band of amazing women. Do they take "the man" down?

Host Jonathan Schwartz is joined by Alex Ago, Aubrey Hicks, and Donnajean Ward to discuss the latest comic book movie.

We hope listeners understand that this podcast is full of spoilers.
