I have a soft spot in my heart for his performance as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray. He is better at comedy than he gets credit for.
I call that time period the Holy Trinity of John Travolta movies: Saturday Night Fever, Grease, and Urban Cowboy. And you are absolutely correct: all three roles were about performative masculinity.
Excellent documentary, and not just because a friend of mine is in it, albeit briefly. It really does shine a huge light on how anytime POC are peacefully enjoying anything, in this case skating, certain others will go out of their way to shut it down.
