In a recent interview, Guy Ritchie got candid about his approach to filmmaking. He was asked about the judgment that always goes along with film and whether it bothers him.
“I think you oscillate. Funny enough, I never do care, up until this moment. But it’s really essentially what the film’s about: Levity, or humor, or wit, implies you have objectivity over your current situation. It implies, in other words: Is anything as serious as you think it is? There’s real danger, and there’s perceived danger. How often are you in real danger?”
When asked about the judgment that comes after the fact he answered similarly.
“And now we’re back to another cliché: It’s about the journey, not the destination. Now, I’m not saying that I won’t, every now and then, slip into [wondering about] the destination. You’ve just got to keep sobering yourself up and remembering it’s about the journey.”
But he did admit that it helps when he has another project on the way.
“Yes. Yeah, it does. Because you can just distract yourself as much with that as you can with anything else. And my job is not to release movies. My job is to make movies.”
