YOU CANNOT KILL DAVID ARQUETTE
Starring: David Arquette
Directors: David Darg and Price James
Hearing a documentary described as "raw" or "intimate" is rather cliché, but You Cannot Kill David Arquette really is raw and intimate. I feel honored to have seen Arquette in such personal settings, working towards his own mental stability through different forms of therapy. The doc also is unafraid to show the physical, sometimes life-threatening, consequences of professional wrestling. Even though it's clearly nonfiction, the stylistic editing and plethora of footage gives this documentary an almost scripted feel. It's an emotional and inspirational fever dream redemption arc that hopefully leads to the resurgence of David Arquette.
David Arquette’s first foray into professional wrestling was considered a joke, and this documentary is all about making up for that. Arquette wears his heart on his sleeve, and I challenge anyone not to root for him while watching him pay his dues and experiencing the toll it takes on his mind and body. Ultimately, this film is about perseverance, passion, and following your dreams - something we can all relate to. When you're in love, you want to be loved back. Arquette is in love with wrestling, and after nearly 20 years, it finally seems ready to love him back.
