Hanks' casting feels like a missed opportunity-much like the rest of Ithaca.
"Ithaca" is the sort of frustrating movie that's just good enough to make you wish it were a lot better.
Ms. Ryan's muted approach may be what we've come to expect of looks back at this period ... But she executes the formula well.
If you can't see where it's all heading, you're probably wearing a onesie and wondering how the mobile over your head works.
Ryan's debut as a director is a sketchy and starchy film.
Dsjointed, dreary and oddly structured. Seemingly pointless scenes drag. The characters feel like cardboard cutouts, and the story is so deliberately paced as to feel tedious.
Dated and dull.
The heavy-handed execution diminishes its emotional impact.
While Ryan takes great pains to recapture the idealistic tone of WWII America, inexperience behind the camera and a muddled, simplistic screenplay are constant hurdles.
The film is confused in conception, dreary in execution, and completely lacking in forward momentum.
An odyssey should be an epic adventure filled with discovery but we know the well-worn route Ithaca will take only too well.
The stylistic mishmash is jarring to say the least. Even the performances -- usually a strong point for actors-turned-directors -- are leaden.
