Guy Ritchie

Guy Stuart Ritchie is an English film director, producer, screenwriter and businessman. His work includes British gangster films, and the Sherlock Holmes films starring Robert Downey Jr. Ritchie left school at age 15 and worked entry-level jobs in the film industry before going on to direct television commercials. In 1995, he directed a short film, The Hard Case, followed by the crime comedy Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, his feature-length directorial debut. He gained recognition with his second film, Snatch, which found critical and commercial success. Following Snatch, Ritchie directed Swept Away, a critically panned box-office bomb starring Madonna, to whom Ritchie was married between 2000 and 2008. He went on to direct Revolver and RocknRolla, which were less successful and received mixed reviews. In 2009 and 2011, he directed two box-office hits, Sherlock Holmes and its sequel, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, respectively.
