Director Dror Moreh has achieved a real coup in The Gatekeepers, persuading six former leaders of the Israeli secret service agency Shin Bet to speak on camera for the first time. They provide a unique perspective on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict over the past fifty years, revealing what they were prepared to do to protect their country and the moral and ethical dilemmas that confronted them. One of the year’s most important and compelling documentaries, it is reminiscent of The Fog of War in the confessional intimacy of its testimony and the valuable insights it provides.
