Blake Over The Lake
9 January 2005 | by (Dundalk, Canada) – See all my reviews

Bill Mason's BLAKE is a pretty attractive documentary piece about a pleasant, intelligent and talented man who lives by no rules but his own. One cannot help but be charmed by conflicting traits of his character: an adult rebel, who exudes a childlike innocence.

The cinematography is simply breathtaking. I particularly loved the shots of his passing biplane reflected in lakes and rivers of an idyllic Canadian wilderness. The subject of this feature, Blake James, lived his real life much as the character in the film. Truly a unique individual, he even appeared once as Wayne Rostad's guest on Canadian CBC-TV's "On The Road Again".

He worked as a draftsman, animator and cartoonist to put food on his table and finance his fascinating and eccentric projects. His passion was designing his own planes, one of which he is shown flying in this picture.
