I just got through viewing the last three episodes from season 2 of Anthony Anderson’s riveting web series, “Anacostia“, and I have to tell you that I am amazed by his creative gift of bringing dramatic cinema to life. The cast is an array of talented women and men who literary become the characters they portray, and it makes their performances believable.
In this series you have couples dealing with some very intense issues from alcoholism, betrayal, prostitution, black mail, infidelity, domestic violence, mental instabilities, rape, and deceit. As you can imagine, all of these issues yield a bevy of dangerous and emotionally disturbing circumstances that are intertwined into plots that leave you wanting more.
Another appealing aspect of “Anacostia” is the beautiful location where it is filmed, so addition to a great story line you really get a birds eye view of this lovely city located in Washington, D. C. When I first started watching this series I had no idea that “Anacostia” was an actual city, and now I have a burning desire to visit the east coast as a tourist and see it for myself.
The other thing I loved about this series is that it wasn’t afraid to explore the lives of an African American, same gender loving couple which is really a breath of fresh air. Because “Anacostia” is filled with drama and intrigue, this couple’s life has it’s own share of upheaval as well but, as I mentioned, I love the fact that Anthony chose to include them into the series.
“Anacostia” just concluded season 2, and Anthony Anderson confirmed on the Vimeo website that there will be a season 3, and that is music to my ears.
If you are looking to fill that dramatic void within you, I highly recommend you drop by Vimeo and check out this exciting web series. Make sure you register and leave comments because we writers are inspired by them.
I know Anthony Anderson will soon be a heavy weight in cinematic expression.
