because directing films is fun and interactive and gregarious.
Writing isn't.
- Guy Ritchie

so once you've got what you need, you can do what you like.
Something does occasionally pop out of that tree.

- Guy Ritchie

and I'm not proud of which format or which particular technique I use.
I just wanted the film to look good.

I liked the idea of one that you'd have to be dancing around with.

I suppose directing on set is the most fun because
it's a good crack and you feel you're on the battlefield

In fact, we are quite low-maintenance.
- Guy Ritchie

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.
- Guy Ritchie

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.
- Guy Ritchie

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.

was to get away from hundreds of people.
My wife fell off a horse, and suddenly there are hundreds of people around.
- Guy Ritchie

and somehow I ended up with this guy whose brother
was feeding people to pigs,
