The critics gave YellowBrickRoad some pretty bad ratings, but I have to say I enjoyed it quite a bit. However, the end bothers me to no end -- I just don't understand it.

Is it that the main character was stuck in the 1940's? Or is everything just happening in his mind?

Its left deliberately vague but I did not get the sense that it was either all in his head or that he was stuck in the 1940s, but rather that it was a supernatural phenomenon where each person's fate depended on their personality and character.

The closest to a definitive answer that I could find is from an interview with the film-makers:

We purposely left the ending open for interpretation because this movie is about the journey- where our characters end up at the end of YellowBrickRoad is dependent on their fears and motivations. Every character ends up with a different fate because of who they are.
