The Gatekeepers Reviews

Page 1 of 6

The film bravely pulls focus on Israel's behaviour as an occupying power, the treatment of the Palestinians and joins the growing list of recent films that cast a critical eye over a subject that was once deemed too thorny to question.

This is unprecedented stuff right here, on a topic so volatile it feels like it's just waiting to explode. And as a film, it's effective - for the most part.

Dror Moreh's documentary is remarkable not for stylistic innovation but for the very fact it exists.

The film is detailed and requires concentration, especially for those who need to read the subtitles. But the effort is worth it for anyone vaguely interested in the subject. And of course the subject goes to the heart of the human condition

A candid, revelatory and at times disturbing documentary that represents one of the 'must-sees' of 2013.

THE GATEKEEPERS doesn't want to function in binaries, it immerses you into the moral and ethical 'grey' quandary of Israel/Palestine.

What's extraordinary about The Gatekeepers isn't just that these guys have agreed to speak on camera - which is remarkable in itself - it's how utterly, astonishingly open and candid they are.

The Gatekeepers shines as both an excellent history lesson and a remarkably in-depth look at one of the world's most important covert agencies.

The Gatekeepers is a fascinating, often shocking, look into the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through the eyes of some of the men who would know it best.

Moreh's interviewees span generations, from elder statesman Avraham Shalom (mastermind of the 1960 Adolf Eichmann grab) to most recent spook-in-chief Yuval Diskin. Each displays a disarming mix of even-voiced candor and respect for talk-it-out diplomacy.

As you listen to these six former chiefs of one of the world's most secretive organizations, it's hard not to have your jaw drop in awe, or surprise at their sudden candor.

There is a powerful moment in [the film] when Diskin, head of the Shin Bet from 2005 to 2011, candidly remarks that for the Palestinians he is himself a terrorist. That is not relativism but realism, and the welcome sign of an empathetic imagination.

Dror Moreh's terrific documentary can stand beside Errol Morris's The Fog of War as a cinematic illustration of how human psyches bend beneath the pressure of terrible actions.

A powerful cautionary tale about the concept of security, and how illusory it really is.

In the end, the accumulated stories in The Gatekeepers offer tremendous insight about the Israeli-Palestinian situation. It feels more like it was prepared as a history document for Shin Bet rookies than a documentary.

...a riveting and sobering documentary about Shin Bet that raises important if unanswerable questions about the morality of state-sanctioned violence in the name of internal security.

[Moreh] asks just the right questions, never prodding these understandably private men too far but getting what he needs.
