I Am the Night

Critics 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.

    Captivating at first, it seemed very interesting had me on my toes until mid season the story line got to be all over the place. Youd expect some grande ending only to be left dissapointed.The ending really upset me because of how anticlimactic it was.They couldve done a lot better of a job with this one as the plot was great just poorly executed.

    Loosely based on real events, this was quite engaging and satisfying overall.

    You wonder where it's going, and then it doesn't really go anywhere.

    I am disappointed with this

    Based on a true story is definitely a massive stretch but Hodel was a slimeball for sure.

    Patti Jenkins (of "Wonder Woman") delivers another masterpiece. The actors are great and the story is completely mesmerizing. "I Am The Night" is one of those rare cases where the truth is MUCH stranger than fiction. It begins as the story of a girl Fauna Hodel (played by India Eisley) looking for her birth mother. And with the help of reporter Jay Singletary (Chris Pine) it turns into the uncovering a possible serial killer. I dont know if Hodel killed Elizabeth Short but the facts presented point to his guilt. Any way you slice it, George Hodel was a horrible human being. Besides the TV series, check out the companion podcast "The Root of Evil". It's hosted by Fauna's daughters Yvette and Rasha. It depicts the intergenerational trauma that is visited upon this family because of George. It might be even be more interesting than the TV series (and that's saying a lot).

    What a show! This show was unlike anything that I've ever seen. The performances in this mini series were phenomenal. Chris Pine brings his a game as always, and India Eisley puts on an outstanding breakout performance. I'm truly believe that she has a big future ahead of her career.

    Both Chris Pine's uncanny performance and India Eisley excellent performance made this intriguing story great.
  • Apr 19, 2019
    I had high hopes for this, and there are interesting things in it, but it somehow feels less than the sum of its parts. I think part of the disconnect might be in trying to straddle the line between (pseudo) realism and something more fantastical. At times, it seemed to want to go for something almost akin to a David Lynch sort of mood, but then it would tip back toward realism, again. The uncertain tone ultimately made the series itself feel tepid, and unsure of itself.

    A teenage girl and a disgraced journalist find themselves drawn into a web of secrets revolving around 1950s Los Angeles' most infamous cold case. Stars: Chris Pine, India Eisley There's a fearful intelligence and stubborn innocence in Eisley's portrayal of the Fauna.The parts of the TV drama that stick closest to the facts are the most satisfying, and the two lead performances
