Synopsis: In HELL John Malkovich recites Allegory of the Cave by Greek philosopher Plato in his work “The Republic”, (514a-520a) to compare “the effect of education and the lack of it on our nature.” It’s about naivety, ignorance, and brain washing. It talks of close-minded folks living in their cave believing the shadows despite the truth’s that surround them. It is these blind folks that have brought on to our world the most atrocious acts of violence on to human mankind ever.
