Critic’s Log — Today’s screening, the Oscar nominated doc “The Gatekeepers”

Call it an intimate history of an Israeli counter-terror campaign that failed. Or a necessary response to a massive internal threat to the Israeli state. The last six heads of Israel’s secret Shin Bet police force — the anti-terrorism unit– talk on camera about what they think worked, and didn’t work work in their endless campaign against terrorists and people they perhaps mislabeled as such. Fascinating stuff. No wonder it’s up for the best documentary feature Oscar.
