You Cannot Kill David Arquette is the most inspirational and uplifting film of the Fantasia Film Fest. I have a newfound respect for Arquette as he grew as a wrestler and person. Documentaries are a genre of film that I do not watch often enough. I plan on rectifying this.
The film is directed by David Darg and Price James and features Charlie Arquette, Coco Arquette, David Arquette, Gus Arquette, Patricia Arquette, Richmond Arquette, Rosanna Arquette, Courteney Cox, Diamond Dallas Page, Ric Flair, Jerry Lawler, Christina McLarty Arquette, Jack Perry, and Luke Perry.
t the age of 48 and recovering from a heart attack, David Arquette decides it’s time to face up to the one thing that’s truly haunted him: His professional wrestling career. While you may know him for his role in the SCREAM series and as part of the famed Arquette acting family (sisters Rosanna, Patricia, the late Alexis; dad Lewis), to millions of wrestling fans he’s the Hollywood actor who undeservedly “won” the WCW title in 2000 to promote the wrestling comedy READY TO RUMBLE. But David Arquette wasn’t acting; he truly loves professional wrestling and is determined to prove that he’s the real deal. So he sets off on a journey more bizarre than any movie, taking him to matches in backyards, Mexico and a bloody bout opposite Nick Gage in Hollywood. Crazy? Sure. Wild? Yup! Dangerous? Undoubtedly. But he wouldn’t have it any other way. You cannot kill David Arquette – only David Arquette can do that.
