When Doug Benson told us he wanted to return to the Traverse City Film Festival this year and do one of his famous Movie Interruptions, there was really only one film that came to mind—a film of such raw masculinity, such compelling Zen wisdom and deep human insight, such beautiful mustaches and mullets, and such blistering pain that it remains the gold standard of 80s prestige filmmaking (read: it’s gloriously campy). Benson and buddies will seat themselves in the front row of the State with microphones in hand to hilariously riff on the timeless story of Dalton (Patrick Swayze), a barroom bouncer (or “cooler” as they say in the biz) on a mission to bring peace to a sleazy saloon.
