The most valuable this very moment
5 July 2018 | by scshineSee all my reviews

It was quite impressive. I didn't know him well though he is a well-known artist. He is fighting against cancer. So he wanted to complete a better masterpiece as much as possible without regret when he died. Even though he had not recovered, he accepted him to compose original soundtracks for the movie, The Revenant. He couldn't refuse the request because he is respecting the director named Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. After watching, I thought about what I should do every day. As well as, I realized that how valuable time at this very moment.
