The Gatekeepers

By MITCH LILLIE
The Shin Bet is the Israeli government's equivalent of the CIA, and its leaders come out of hiding in The Gatekeepers. Interviews with all six surviving former heads of the secretive counterterrorism group, speaking publicly for the first time, compose Dror Moreh’s documentary. Some events may not ring a bell, but digital re-enactments mesh with photographs to help bring them to life. Aside from these animations, The Gatekeepers relies exclusively on one-on-one interviews, but its clean organization keeps wandering thoughts at bay. Though the Palestinian side of the story is completely absent, Moreh doesn’t pull any punches. The Shin Bet leaders’ replies are honest, astute and even compassionate as they let the cruel skeletons out of their closet.
