In the 1860s, five men have been tracking a sixth across Nevada for more than two weeks. They shoot and wound him, but he gets away. They pursue, led by the dour Carver, who will pay them each $1 a day once he’s captured. The hunted is Gideon, resourceful, skilled with a knife. Gideon’s flight and Carver’s hunt require horses, water, and bullets. The course takes them past lone settlers, a wagon train, a rail crew, settlements, and an Indian philosopher. What is the reason for the hunt; what connects Gideon and Carver? What happened at Seraphim Falls?
This is an excellent western – with two great stars that show grit and go beyond their usual work. The photography is stunning and the story is meant to make you think – not pander to the usual formulaic plot. The first 30 minutes will make your hair stand up and the rest will keep you going – definitely a must see. Pay attention to the cameos at the end. They have gone about the heads of some reviewers, but really bring a sense of classical reference to the story. War has been a societal issue since ancient Greece, and perhaps we have not yet learned the lessons that need to be learned.
Kudos to the director who has brought together story, talent, and visual art in one epic piece.
