In The Duchess, Brigid Berlin makes drug deals, shoots up her friend, and gets her hair done all in the same afternoon. The documentary-like Nico in Kitchen, a charming, seemingly domestic portrait of a couple and their child hanging out in the kitchen, was enhanced by the real-life circumstances of Nico who, in a relationship with Eric Emerson at the time, had just been reunited with her small son, Ari Boulogne. Both films, shot after The Chelsea Girls premiere, became part of the film when reels of The Trip, The John, and The Gerard Malanga Story were no longer being shown.
