I will get there, eventually...

The mid-'90s film, Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe, popped up on one of the Freeview channels this weekend. Now, can anyone give me a sensible explanation of just how and why this was the first time that I'd watched it, rather than the fourth or fifth? Nor can I. Sheeeesh. How could I not like a film that opens by creating a great, sympathetic character, fleshing out his bones into a third dimension and, immediately, killing him stone dead? Fine, fine motion picture, as its creators would insist on calling it.
