Mini: A Life Revisited

“No sooner than you walk out of the institution, you are actually only equipped to remain in it. And when you are alone, what was once a very bright mind, can actually become your enemy.”
Michael ‘Mini’ Cooper

 

Really interesting documentary about an 11-year-old serial arsonist Michael ‘Mini’ Cooper. Shot in 1975, it lets us into Mini’s world and the consequences of choices that were made for him by the authorities.
The film is followed up with an interview with Cooper as he is now, and the film’s director Franc Roddam.
