    The Magnificent Ambersons

    ★★★★½

    I finally understand why that lost reel is such a tragedy. For just that one tracking-crane shot that was cut, it would be invaluable. The movie and sets are fantastic as is, but could be even more-so if made whole.

    I like Birbiglia's comedy. I liked his first movie. I like this, too. It comes and goes, but I still like it.

    I really wish that they had just made The Little Prince instead of whatever this is.

    Another fantastic movie. The only weak area was the directing / camera work. The non-fixed camera felt frequently distracting. That said, that and the low angles did go a long way to showing Jack's perspective. It's really a movie about him more than his mother. Highly recommended.
