"It’s about spycraft, but it goes to the source. If for no other reason, it deserves to be seen for arranging decades of events in the Middle East into a chronology that, to an outsider, makes dreadful sense. "
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"This is a great and necessary document in support of a two-state solution. Even those who don't believe in such a solution may find their minds changed by The Gatekeepers."
- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"The film, by seasoned cinematographer Dror Moreh, is a feat — of access and of passionate and appropriately unsettling political commentary."
- Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"The Israeli journalist Dror Moreh has hit a documentarian's trifecta with The Gatekeepers. It's an exemplary piece of enterprise journalism, a vivid history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and a polemic that's all the more remarkable for the shared experience of the polemicists."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"This is one hot, provocative, revelatory and astonishing documentary, one sure to provoke enthralled interest and controversy wherever it is shown worldwide."
- Todd McCarthy, The Hollywood Reporter
"A documentary potent enough to alter how you see the world."
- Ken Turan, Los Angeles Times
