You Cannot Kill David Arquette

He wanted their respect.

Back in 2000, a still-callow David Arquette got his dream, handed a championship wrestling crown as promotion for a film.

And the ring world hated him for it.

Years later, owner of a sputtering career, recovering from a heart attack, he shocks the world by fully committing to life inside the ropes, desperate to win the approval of the grapplers he always idolized.

The moves may be pre-planned, but the wear-and-tear (and gushing neck wounds) are real, in a film which goes surprisingly deep.

Keep your Oscar-bait docs. This is the punch to the kidneys I need.
