Shelly Dunn Fremont and Vincent Fremont, once vice president of Andy Warhol Enterprises, directed this documentary about disaffected debutante and longtime Warhol cohort Brigid Berlin (“the Duchess” in The Chelsea Girls), and I stopped trusting their judgment during a scene in which the 60-year-old Berlin is shown plucking her facial hair in an extreme close-up. It's a cheap shot in a mostly fascinating, sad, and artful collage of the life and art of a woman who seems to have found—in the absence of love or employment—a kind of contentment in chronic dieting and being a connoisseur of key lime pie. With John Waters and Patricia Hearst. 75 min.
