Overview

In this glossy L.A. crime drama by Mike Figgis, Andy Garcia stars as Sgt. Raymond Avila, a cop who just joined the Internal Affairs division of the L.A.P.D. An investigation into police corruption has led Avila and his partner, Sgt. Amy Wallace Laurie Metcalf, to Officer Dennis Peck Richard Gere. Avila suspects something about Peck from the beginning; his influence and dominance over others seems to extend further than the reach of his badge. When officers who wish to testify against Peck start dying, the depth of his corruption becomes increasingly clear; at his disposal, he has an army of cops and criminals alike. He even agrees to assassinate a sleazy businessman's own parents, and humiliates the businessman while they make the deal. In his drive to dominate others, Peck attempts to seduce almost every woman around him and is obsessed with children and fatherhood. Peck is most dangerous when the investigation threatens his territory and his extended family; he stalks Avila and turns him against his wife Nancy Travis.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
An air of poisoned, kinky sex hangs over almost every frame of Internal Affairs and makes it an interesting neo-noir with a slyly apt title, for what's more "internal" than one's sexual affairs? The best of the early, great noirs have an overripe tone and a heated subtext that suggest things at least as interesting as what's made explicit. So does Internal Affairs: Director Mike Figgis, screenwriter Henry Bean, and cinematographer John A. Alonzo load the film with a creepy sexual undertone that pools around the police procedural staples of the plot. Raymond (Andy Garcia) is an Internal Affairs investigator who would rather be mercilessly pursuing corruption along the dark, deserted L.A. streets with his lesbian partner (Laurie Metcalf) than home with his lovely but demure wife (Nancy Travis). Officer Dennis Peck (Richard Gere) uses sex and the sleaze he finds on the job as a bludgeon to seduce women and emasculate men. He uses an accidental shooting to corrupt one fellow cop (Michael Beach) and drugs, money, and an affair with his wife to subvert another (William Baldwin). It's one of Gere's most seamless and convincing performances: You can see from the sadistic gleam in his eye that he's really enjoying himself, and if the suffused sex in the movie doesn't throw you off, you'll enjoy it, too.

    Richard Gere and Andy Garcia at their finest!

    I absolutley love this movie. Richard Gere and Andy Garcia make great nemeses. This movie had it all - a great plot, plenty of action and great acting by all (even by Billy Baldwin). This is a must see. In my opinion, this movie has become a classic.
