“Popular films, or “movies”, provided another important means through which the interior was mediated and a desire to consume stimulated on a mass scale through the twentieth century. Movies were created to entertain, distract and provide a level of fantasy and escapism from the realities of everyday life. They offered, therefore, an ideal vehicle for commercial and ideological messages and product placements.”
