“I’m importing this liquor from Bolivia: Singani. Technically it’s a brandy. I was turned onto it while I was doing Che and everybody on the crew got hooked. You don’t get that burn in your throat like you do with most hard liquor, so it’s dangerous. You can drink it like water and then you’re invisible.” —The uncompromising, visionary director of movies like Traffic and Contagion is quitting Hollywood, and will now sell brandy made from white muscatel grapes.
