Being a Kate Moss fan, I too, like thousands of others, furiously typed in www.agentprovocateur.com trying to get a first glimpse at the advert that caused AP’s site server to crash due to the number of people checking out Miss Moss’ acting debut. I signed up, signed in, put my headphones on and excitedly watched â€œShadows the first of four short films entitled â€œThe Four Dreams of Miss X.
It was creatively a visual success. Directed by Mike Figgis, the black and white four minute film, shows Kate writhing around on a bed with a slightly confused look on her a face. Dressed in sexy underwear and tights she relates to the audience in detail a dream she’s had and the scene switches to clips of her walking up a grand staircase.
She looked stunning, but failed to be erotic. Prior to shooting Kate had been worried about her voice, however her voice was fine, instead it was more her acting which was questionable. The dialogue or rather her delivery lacked a certain X-factor and just as I would manage to connect with her performance she would try too hard.
The trailer is better than the actual film. The second installment is due to be uploaded on the 1st of November, the third (which will feature a nude Kate) on the 10th of January 2007 and the final part on the 1st of March 2007.
