(Israel, 2012) Written and directed by Dror Moreh. Music by Ab Ovo and Jérôme Chassagnard. With: Ami Ayalon, Avi Dichter, Yuval Diskin, Carmi Gillon, Yaakov Peri, Avraham Shalom.

2012 was a banner year for documentaries, as seen in the excellent Academy Award® nominees (The Gatekeepers, Searching For Sugar Man, 5 Cameras, The Invisible War, How to Survive a Plague). The Gatekeepers is a clear-eyed and instructive film that features radically honest conversations with six retired members of Shin Bet, Israel’s top secret security force. As they candidly reveal the highs and lows of their careers, like most former spies, they are critical of the political leadership that pulled their strings - and did little to advance a two-state solution to the Palestinian conflict. “I think, after retiring from this job, you become a bit of a leftist.” - Yaakov Peri, former Shin Bet leader. 97 min.
