Unbreakable

Unbreakable ★★★★

Elijah's insistence upon a cosmic sense of balance fuels his belief that David Dunn is his equal - hero & villain, Unbreakable & Mr. Glass - yet Shyamalan actually uses a little visual rhyme to align Elijah not with David, but his son, Joseph Dunn.

Parallel origins with diverging paths; Moral awakenings rooted in reality vs fiction. Shyamalan returns to the POV shot several times throughout the film, but its most crucial usage to this reading occurs at the end, when David slides the newspaper over to his son, and there we see (through Joseph's eyes) a printed story about his heroics, presented right-side-up.
