When Monty Python released their masterpiece "The meaning of life" in 1983, I thought I just saw the final chapter on the matter. I made a mistake. Two years later, Dr. Creator came out on the screen and made me change my opinion. A wonderfully struggled Peter O'Toole in one of his best performances ever, a ethereal Mariel Hemingway permeated by her uncle's dreams, a young Vincent Spano and a beautiful Virginia Madsen to pack up the gift. Dealing with life and death from a genetic scientist's point of view, Peter O'Toole discovers in the end (same as Steve Jobs stated in his speech to Stanford's students in 2005) that death is the best invention life ever created. Can't remember the final words by O'Toole exactly but their sound was something like: "When science will ascend the peak summit, it will discover that religion had been sitting there since ages.". Movie definitely underrated, deserves atleast 9/10.
