I have no idea what exactly this quote is trying to say. To give it some context, i'm doing an essay on realism and the different ways that its used in City of God. I hope someone out there can help.

Cinematic realism is viewed as a discourse coded for transparency such that the indexicality of photo-graphic realism is replaced by a view of the “reality-effect” produced by codes and discourse.

It's meaningless. Unless the writer wants to rewrite this in an intelligible way, they are being deliberately unhelpful.

Is this a real example: is there a source?

i agree with chazwomaq's analysis.... i did not understand the sentence. the individual words were OK, but they linked together to make an unintelligible rete non-mirabile.

Yeah there is a source its the University of California Press. And yeah I think they are just being deliberately unhelpful.
