I use this technique sometimes and it works if the unclosed bracket is
still in view.

If you use vim then you can do [( i.e. type '[' followed by '(' in
normal mode. It will jump backwards to the first unmatched opening
bracket. Use ]) to find the next unmatched closing bracket. You can
also do [{ and ]} for curly brackets. I'm not sure how to do square
brackets - [[ and ]] are used for navigating between functions.
