Cinematic - Cover - 9781533169082-PerfectCinematic Codes Review features works in all visual genres, especially those with moving pictures, be they music videos, feature films, documentaries, photography, or just about any other mode or genre of art that does not fall into the realm of “literature,” which will be the primary object of Anaphora’s Pennsylvania Literary Journal. The other term in the name is “codes” and the intention here is to go beyond the simple summary or theme of the projects criticized in this journal’s pages to the codes and meanings that are hidden beyond the superficial. The third component of the journal is a dedication to reviewing and criticizing the arts, as opposed to applauding and viewing them. A great review should help artists to make better art by pointing out flaws. There is no such thing as perfect art, as all art is still in its infancy, and the last couple of centuries have seen great leaps in its evolution. There is a long road ahead for art, and it’s the critics’ job to take it in the right direction. Artists are not children that need to be congratulated on their mistakes. They should see profits in honest negativity, and the downfall of creativity in false flattery.

“I have worked with Anna for a few years now and am always pleased with the results.  She responds almost immediately to submissions, the journal is professional and always published on time, with both electronic and print options.  There is always courteous and yet efficient communication on editorial and business matters.  PLJ has interesting, formidable content.  It is one answer to the almost uniformly bland and oh-hum state of commercial publishing.” –Louis Gallo, PhD, Professor at Radford University
