Movie Review: The Gatekeepers
4.5 out of 5 Stars
Director • Dror Moreh
Rated • PG-13
Recommended to • Anyone interested in the Israeli and Palestinian conflict.
Dror Moreh’s documentary focuses on six former heads of Shin Bet, the Israeli Secret Service, and their direct involvement in the Israeli and Palestinian conflict that has divided Israel for decades. The interviews are extremely candid and go off into directions that you would never expect. This candidness is partly due to Moreh’s willingness to ask the difficult questions as well as the desire of those being interviewed to be completely frank and honest. It’s amazing what hindsight and a strict self-analysis can do to a person’s perspective. “The Gatekeepers” is a fantastic documentary; more importantly it is a vital slice of history uncensored.
