The Gatekeepers

Man, it is really the season for documentaries. They're everywhere! Here's one featuring interviews with all surviving former heads of Shin Bet. That's the top secret Israeli security agency whose activities and membership are strictly hush-hush. Amazingly, producers got these guys to talk, and boy are they happy to drop some knowledge. This truth-spilling doc covers everything from terrorism to torture to war to the Palestinean question to the struggle among the Israeli people themselves to reach some kind of consensus on these issues. Let's just say it doesn't paint a very rosy picture about the idea of peace in the Middle East. 101 minutes PG-13.
