I Am the Night: Miniseries (2019)

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: Chris Pine inhabits I Am the Night with the roguish gravitas befitting a noir -- even if this entry into the pulp genre is more straightforward and languidly paced than some viewers would like.

Critic Reviews for I Am the Night Miniseries

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (22)

I Am the Night is maybe a little less ambitious as a project but it allows Jenkins to play with ideas, genre and cinematic style with a narrative that has a deeply archetypal edge

Pine gets lots to chew on while the makeup department is taxed to keep up with his various cuts and bruises. In that respect he's served a full plate. Too bad that too much of this is either overcooked or under-prepared.

There's a fearful intelligence and stubborn innocence in Eisley's portrayal of the Fauna.

That there's any emotional heft can be largely credited to Pine, pushing a bloody boulder up a neon-lit hill. But in the end, it's all as empty as the hollow paintings of a soulless man.

The parts of the TV drama that stick closest to the facts are the most satisfying, and the two lead performances are equally strong.

Even though the limp script leaves something to be desired, I Am the Night succeeds in terms of mood and sense of place.

Jan 24, 2019 | Full Review…

I Am the Night feel like an interesting but ultimately fruitless thought experiment.

Mar 6, 2019 | Full Review…

The way that 'I Am the Night' weaves all of the elements together is not difficult to follow. In fact, the way each piece in the mystery unfolds will have audiences on the edge of their seats anticipating the next revelation.

Mar 3, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

So far, I Am the Night has failed to adequately represent the perspectives of the women it's supposedly about. The result is something that's way more boring than it should be.

Feb 14, 2019 | Full Review…

Intriguing but melodramatic real-life mystery lacks nuance.
