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.
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.
