It’s all in how you execute it. When I read that, my mind immediately flashed to doing that through a story with a character who seems like a simpleton or a little crazy or whatever and then using that character’s POV to clarify what had been a misleading or incorrect perspective from the others near the end. I’ve invested 10 seconds in thinking that through, but the point is (like just about anything in writing) what could be done poorly and be a drawback in one narrative could be the shining gem in another.
