In Seraphim Falls, Liam Neeson and his posse hunt a battered Pierce Brosnan in the months following the Civil War. The film offers few clues about the cause of their beef till the end -- when the two stars square off in a desert showdown, and the line between protagonist and villain becomes blurred. Part John Ford Western (dig those spacious skies!), part Cold Mountain travelogue (characters pop in for scene-tying vignettes), Seraphim Falls is a modest stunner.
