An entertaining portrait of one of Australia's greatest musicians, "Stories of Me" doesn't delve as deep as it could into the enigmatic personality of Kelly himself, but acts as more of a portrait of the music and it's connections to real life. And it is a truly beautiful body of music that Paul Kelly has written.

This is an entertaining documentary.

A sensitive and honest portrayal of Paul Kelly and his effect on Australian music. The brilliance of this film is held in the facts that a) Kelly rarely speaks, and instead leaves the word to friends, relatives and musicians; and b) it is not portrayed in a chronological manner. Kelly's work will leave an imprint on Australian society for decades to come. A highly recommended outing.

Shit documentary. Shame, as there is a whole lot to be explored and it probably will never be done properly.

Self-involved, much? Fuck off Paul.

It's not that this isn't an interesting film, it's that when it gets to the nitty gritty the film just jumps to something else.
His habitual infidelity is skimmed over until almost the very end and his heroin use seems hardly worth a mention ("I used it for 25 years but decided to give it up before I had a problem"... yeah, right).
I felt the film was guilty of turning away when it should have held up a spotlight and was thus disappointing.
The use of lyrics on the screen was annoying.

Delightful to watch. Some great footage from the 70s and 80s. I found out a lot about Paul Kelly, and became even more attached to his music.
