10) You Cannot Kill David Arquette
I’m a huge pro-wrestling fan, and one of the crushing losses of 2020 was not going to live wrestling shows. The industry has adapted to creative effect as shown through The Stadium Stampede, The Firefly Funhouse Match, and just putting on excellent matches without an audience. Of course, in preparation for when things open up, audiences can gain an appreciation of pro-wrestling through David Arquette. You Cannot Kill David Arquette is a love letter to all areas of wrestling, from the mainstream to the indie circuit, with enough context given so non-wrestling fans can find the stories interesting. Additionally, the film is also a compelling redemption story in his own right. Even non-wrestling fans will understand Arquette’s regret about his early foray into wrestling and his desire to show respect to the industry he loves. The film is an emotional journey for David Arquette, and you feel his desire to express his love of wrestling in a way that honors the industry properly. The doc even acts as a microcosm of wrestling storytelling, as the line between real and kayfabe is blurred following Arquette’s journey. I was lucky enough to see David Arquette last year at WrestleCon, and I hope this doc gets more people on Arquette’s wrestling comeback.
