Meanwhile, Peterson's director nonchalantly takes a bite like it's a piece of wonder bread. "It's kind of got a beef jerky flavor," says the director. That line alone may make you want to vomit. Nonetheless, he seems to enjoy it some, which pretty perfectly embodies the extreme divide between people who love durian and the people who can't stand it.
