THE GATE­KEEP­ERS Di­rected by Dror Moreh

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - CINEMA - DC

Nom­i­nated for an Os­car at the most re­cent cer­e­mony, Dror Moreh’s ter­rific doc­u­men­tary on Shin Bet, the in­ter­nal Is­raeli se­cu­rity ser­vice, can stand happily be­side Er­rol Mor­ris’s The Fog of War as a cin­e­matic il­lus­tra­tion of how hu­man psy­ches bend be­neath the pres­sure of ter­ri­ble ac­tions. Six for­mer di­rec­tors of the body speak frankly about com­pro­mises and out­rages. Al­most all con­clude that com­pro­mise with the Pales­tini­ans is the only way for­ward. Fas­ci­nat­ing stuff.
