Filmmaker Dror Moreh offers an intimate look into the Palestinian/Israeli conflict from the perspective of the Shin Bet, Israel's counterterrorism agency. Gatekeepers Reviews: "What these tough and tough-minded men have to say about Israeli politicians, and the nation's current stance vis vis its enemies, is stunning and edifying in equal measure." Wall Street Journal "The six men have different personalities that suggest varying styles of leadership, but whats remarkable about THE GATEKEEPERS is how they speak in one voice about the moral complexities of their former jobs and their extreme pessimism about the future." -- Scott Tobias, A.V. Club 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "THE GATEKEEPERS cuts deeper than any political thriller. It's a powerhouse." -- Peter Travers, The Rolling Stones "It's the collective, pained urgency in their voices that makes this documentary not only an important work of filmmaking but also, just perhaps, of peacemaking as well." -- Grade: A-- Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly 4 stars out of 4 -- "THE GATEKEEPERS is never less than engrossing, enlightening and profoundly unsettling. The first must-see movie of the year is a riveting espionage thriller that just happens to be true." Washington Post 4 stars out of 4 -- "The film's atmosphere is compelling, and another strength is that it is self-critical." Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "A compelling documentary, it offers startlingly honest insight into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from some of those who called the shots." -- Claudia Puig, USA Today 5 stars out of 5 -- "Insightful, revelatory and profound... "-- David Hughes, Empire 4 stars out of 5 -- "[A]n absorbing documentary, which charts the Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the Six Day War to the present-day." -- Tom Dawson, Total Film.
