If Plato were to watch Inception he would be impressed by the writers for using some of his theories very well throughout the movie. Inception is a movie about what people believe their reality is, and those who do not question the concept of their reality.

Dom would be the enlightened individual who understands that Limbo is not true reality, and he is also the ‘return of the person who escapes,’ by trying to show Mal the correct path. The world outside of the dream world is where people are enlightened by what is actually real; similarly people who escape from a cave realize that there is a world outside of the cave.
