    "Behind 'Bernie' and 'The Creator' there is one thing in common: the wish to treat dramatic subjects in a burlesque, farcical way. Being less anchored in social reality than 'Bernie,' 'The Creator' seems more personal, but in fact it connects with another collective angst, the angst of creativity. Another thing both films have in common is that their heroes, Bernie and Darius, both fight against Death; they fight the inevitable. Life is a race against death and the best man never wins."
