The director, David Von Ancken, and his cinematographer, John Toll, do magical things with the ever-shifting light, and there are splendidly weird turns from Anjelica Huston as a snake-oil salesperson and Tom Noonan as a wagon-train Evangelist.

After a roaring opening hour, Van Acken settles for a parched ending that's the Old West equivalent to "Can't we all get along?"

For all its many virtues, not the least of which are its ambition and its obvious intelligence, Seraphim Falls is an honorable disappointment.

Von Ancken may have begun this by wanting to remember films like High Plains Drifter. But all he ends up doing is reminding us how much better they were.

... it moves along with minimalist efficiency before running out of gas during an overlong allegorical final section.

It's hard to find a movie that's as brutal as Seraphim Falls that's also consistently boring, but somehow that's what's happened here.
