Guy Ritchie Quotes
I got into film-making because I was interested in making entertaining movies, which I felt there was a lack of.
All the other guys I think had a scream on Lock, Stock. They just had a laugh and a crack, and thought it would never come out; they were just having a good time. On this one, I felt that.
Having A Good Time
On Lock, Stock, we didn't know where the money for shooting the next day was coming from.
The English countryside is the most staggeringly beautiful place. I can't spend as much time there as I like, but I like everything about it. I like fishing, I like clay- pigeon shooting.
We can all be conned but at what point do we realize that we're being conned and to what point do we allow ourselves to be conned?
It's about not letting the internal enemy, the real enemy, have his way because the more he does the stronger he becomes. The film's about the devastating results that can manifest from the internal enemy being unbridled and allowed to unleash chaos.
I'm not under too much of an illusion of how smart or un-smart I am because filmmaking ultimately is about teamwork.
The best thing to do is find one person in your life and try to love them unconditionally. If you've accomplished that, you've accomplished a lot.
They're all based on factual characters. Well, a good amount of them. That's why I was attracted to this genre anyways, because these characters are so large and cartoonish, they're like caricatures, I just felt that there had to be a film made about them.
Previously, on Lock, Stock, I went to bed at two in the morning and woke up at five in the morning, and on this one I was known to nod off on the set occasionally.

After Lock, Stock, all these really nasty small town characters came knocking at my door trying to tell me stories, and somehow I ended up with this guy whose brother was feeding people to pigs, and that's what he did to get rid of people.
I can understand that the whole world is interested in my wife Madonna. That's even why I married her.
Yeah, I'm certainly a lot more confident on this one than I was one the last one, which I think can be a good thing and a bad thing. But, at least I slept while making this film.
Well, what I try to do is throw as much mud on the wall as I possibly can and just see what sticks, what shines as quirky or more interesting that the others, and I try to cling onto that one, somehow join a link from there to there.
The idea is that that there is no such thing as an external enemy.
My principal job is to make interesting and entertaining films, and I'm not proud of which format or which particular technique I use. I just wanted the film to look good.
Jake Green isn't just Jake Green. Jake represents all of us. The colour green is the central column of the spectrum and the name Jake has all sorts of numerical values. All things come back to him within the film's world of cons and games.
In fact, 95% of the people in my films have been nothing less than a pleasure to work with.
If somebody has a better idea than me, I'll take it if it surpasses what we have on the page because at the end of the day, it's me that takes the credit anyway!
End Of The Day
I think there's a natural system in your own head about how much violence the scene warrants. It's not an intellectual process, it's an instinctive process.
I like to think that we've got a plan, so let's stick to it. That said, once we've stuck to it, we're allowed as much improvisation as anyone cares to indulge themselves in.
I like death. I'm a big fan of it.
Other than the fact that I like a country house, I can't think of anything I'd want to spend my money on.
I love fatherhood. I could bang on about kids forever.
We're quite volatile as individuals, but that doesn't work exponentially when we are together. Relationships are about eating humble pie.
I got too fed up with films that didn't make you think. I liked the idea of one that you'd have to be dancing around with. I like my mind to be engaged when I watch a film.
