This movie "queer' road movie because as Robert Lang writes, "...the new queer road movie eschews the 'happy ending' of Hollywood cinema...(242)." It doesn't give a direct answer to anything. There is no emerald city for Mike; his house falls in the prairie splinters. Scott and Mike they don't have perfect happy lifestyles. Mike has narcolepsy; he seems to only be happy when he has passed out and has memories of his mother. Viewers are not quiet sure if Scott is happy with his choice, going back to his comfortable heterosexual life style. The last shots viewers see of Mike passed out and being taken into an unknown person car. It's a very ambiguous ending.
