I found Inception to be derived from The Matrix movies mainly.  

Polish author Jan Potocki, writing in French, produced one of the greatest books ever in this or any genre, over 200 years ago: The Manuscript Found At Saragossa.  Like Inception, it uses a "Russian doll" or "Chinese box" technique, where you end up in a story, which is inside another story, which is inside yet another story.

Mysterious, dramatic, and at times hilarious, Potocki's book deserves to be known more today!  Like Don Rosa's and Carl Barks' stories!  

Best Wishes!
