Directed by Nagisa Oshima.

REVIEWED By Marjorie Baumgarten, Fri., Oct. 6, 1995

The Austin Film Society calendar lists Otto Prreminger's Carmen Jones as sceening on Tuesday, October 10. They've called to let us know that the listing is incorrect. Carmen Jones will instead show on October 31. Inadvertantly, dates were reversed. What you will see at the free screening this Tuesday is something quite different, Boy (1969), by Japanese maverick Nagisa Oshima (In the Realm of the Senses, Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence) which explores the fantasy world of a boy who is morally corrupted by his parents.
