LGBT Docs Rock Tribeca – By Christopher Wallenberg

When Warhol famously declared that everyone in the future world be famous for 15 minutes, he was conjuring the rise of 21st century pseudo-celebrities such as Alexis Arquette, the transgendered sibling of Hollywood?s Arquette clan (Rosanna, Patricia and David). The actress and drag performer is the subject of the world premiere documentary ?Alexis Arquette: She?s My Brother? by filmmakers Matthew Barbato and Nikki Parrott. Arquette has acted in dozens of films, including a noted turn as a Male to Female transsexual in ?Last Exit to Brooklyn? and a memorable minor role as a Boy George fanatic in ?The Wedding Singer.? She also appeared on last year?s edition of ?The Surreal Life.? While the candid documentary shows Arquette?s interactions with her famous siblings (and sister-in-law Courteney Cox), the film?s true focus is on her life as a transgendered person and her struggles with the grueling process of sex reassignment surgery.
