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.

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.

Writer Sam Sheridan, adapting Fauna Hodel's autobiography, and director Patty Jenkins...sweep the viewer into their milieu from the very first shot.

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.

Intriguing but melodramatic real-life mystery lacks nuance.

Feb 13, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Pine is that rare truly handsome actor who can not only act but whose comedic timing is delicious.

Feb 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Even when the series is flawed, as with "I Am the Night," it's a treat to see a star like Pine stretch his acting muscles.
