I just watched this movie again and can't help but want the soundtrack. I have looked a lot of places, but it seems hard to find--my friend apparently found one for like $50 used, but I was wondering if anyone has stumbled across a cheaper version, by chance, and new.

It's a weird twist of fate actually:

At the end they both feel compelled to not let one another get captured by the Japanese government so they shoot one another. It's quite sad actually. I think it was modelled after real-life events.
