Why the Orange Suited Man
« on: November 12, 2010, 10:06:09 PM »
My question is...why does David decide to follow the Orange Suit Man? In the scene before the train scene...he admits to Elijah he's never been hurt. That admission...along with Elijah's suggestion: to go where people are...suggests to me...David is ready to be a Hero...he's ready to confront evil...so why the Orange Suit Man?

You answered your own question.

He's ready to confront evil. The Orange Man is evil.

He allowed people to touch him, and was open to their evil deeds. I suppose the evil deeds of the Orange Suit Man seemed more serious, as well as more urgent, since he was still engaged in his crime.
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

Namaste is right. Orange Suited Man's deeds were far more serious and urgent than the others, so he had to make a decision and follow him. He did found out that the crime was pure work of evil.

The beautiful thing about this film is that David and the Orange Suited Man never looked each other in the eye.

Seen the film so many times and also read the script few times, I realized it about a week ago when I was thinking about the scene when "Elijah" is explaining the eyes of the evil and the hero in one of his sketches to his customer.
