    David Mackenzie’s Perfect Sense takes place in Glasgow. You’d love it.

    My urge to go ‘actually’ is always strongest when you’re talking about food: David, if you’ve eaten a lot of kebab in Germany, you have eaten a lot of German food, as the traditional kebab sandwich was invented in Berlin by a Turkish immigrant.
    Also, haggis is often baked or (deep)-fried after it has been boiled. You cut off a slice, fry it up and eat it on a bun, like blood sausage.

      I didn’t know that about the kebab! I guess that’s kind of like the burrito (as we know it), a handheld Mexican food invented by a Latinx-American in San Francisco.

    Local Hero and Gregory’s Girl. Two very fine films set in Scotland.

    Well then, you won’t need me to pile on another nudge, but Gregory’s Girl really is a treat, more than Local Hero. Films can be such small investments for such huge rewards. I’ve seen Gregory’s Girl perhaps three times since the week it was released and here in my sixth decade it flickers away still in a deep corner. I can feel its feels whenever I need them.
