Our next Rialto Recommends is one of those films that came out and then disappeared from theaters all too quickly. Released in January, 1990 Mike Figgis' INTERNAL AFFAIRS stars Richard Gere, Andy Garcia, and Laurie Metcalf. Keen young Raymold Avila (Garcia) joins the Internal Affairs Department of the Los Angeles police. He and partner Amy Wallace (Metcalf) are soon looking closely at the activities of cop Dennis Peck (Gere) whose financial holdings start to suggest something shady. Indeed Peck is involved in any number of dubious or downright criminal activities. He is also devious, a womaniser, and a clever manipulator, and he starts to turn his attention on Avila. Time Magazine raved "Gere is hypnotic, writer Henry Bean's construction is entertainingly intricate, and director Mike Figgis knows how to turn on a subtle, authentic erotic heat." While the Washington Post said "Figgis gives his dolled-up universe a high-voltage hum. And at the center of it, Gere is an extraordinarily vivid monster -- the devil as fashion plate." And the UK's Film4 said "The conflict between Gere and Garcia is what carries the movie; deep beneath the macho brutality there's an almost homoerotic tint to their relationship. It makes for compelling stuff." INTERNAL AFFAIRS is streaming on AmazonPrime, Crackle and PopcornFlix or is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu, and Apple HERE.
