Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is one of the most polarizing political leaders on the world stage. His hardline politics on Iran and Israeli-Palestinian affairs have won him both intense support and bitter criticism at home and abroad--all the more so after his dramatic attempt in March 2015 to derail President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran in front of the U.S. Congress.

Professional Reviews:

"As usual, documentary filmmaker Michael Kirk excels at telling the story through personalities rather than headlines." - The Denver Post

"...riveting" and "well-told...good refresher course" on Israeli politics." - Eric Black of Minn Post

"Frontline has once again navigated that minefield in a manner that sheds light on both sides of the argument - as well as on Netanyahu's influence, in his country and abroad - with the kind of clarity and depth that TV too seldom provides." - Variety

"Timely and thorough, PBS' Frontline returns January 5 with "Netanyahu At War", and an inside look at the Israeil Prime Minister's political rise and fractious relationship with some American politicians as well as his biggest supporters who refer to him as 'Bibi'." - Monsters and Critics
"...long-term director Michael Kirk illuminates the complex (and fragile) diplomatic relations between Washington and Tel Aviv with Netanyahu At War, produced for Frontline." - Le Devior

3 out of 4 stars
"An evenhanded and informative profile that does not view Netanyahu through the prism of right or wrong, but rather sees him at the center of conflicting world views, this is recommended." Video Librarian

Description

  • FRONTLINE: Obama, Netanyahu, and the Bomb

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is one of the most polarizing political leaders on the world stage. His hardline politics on Iran and Israeli-Palestinian affairs have won him both intense support and bitter criticism at home and abroad--all the more so after his dramatic attempt in March 2015 to derail President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran in front of the U.S. Congress.

    Now, with new waves of violence between Israelis and Palestinians unfolding and Israel-U.S. relations already emerging as a 2016 campaign issue, FRONTLINE presents this epic, two-hour documentary tracing Netanyahu's path to power, his combative relationships with multiple U.S. presidents and the implications in America and the Middle East. Filmmaker Michael Kirk (United States of Secrets, League of Denial) takes a revealing inside look at political relations between the U.S. and Israel, long one of America's closest allies, as he and his investigative team go inside the events that have defined one of Israel's longest serving prime ministers, drawing on more than 30 remarkably candid interviews with his current and former advisors; top Israeli, American and Palestinian officials; foreign policy analysts; authors and journalists. The resulting film is an unprecedented, must-watch look inside the relationship between the U.S. and Israel during the Netanyahu years.
