There’s a fearful intelligence and stubborn innocence in Eisley’s portrayal of the Fauna. She knows something is wrong with her mother, but she can’t take warning about her grandfather to heart. Pine’s good reporter turned into a hack by addiction is a gleefully dissolute character filled with sweaty desperation.
I Am the Night may be a little too formulaic to be TV’s next limited series with maximum impact--a la “Sharp Objects,” or what TNT really wants, another “True Detective”--but it’s well positioned to deliver the kind of entertainment that overly serious fare often overlooks.
