The review of this Movie prepared by BethG

INTERNAL AFFAIRS is a movie directed by Mike Figgis in 1990.

L.A. Andy Garcia is a new member of the internal affairs of the Los Angeles police. He will go after Richard Gere, the best policeman in town, who gives his protection to anyone asking for it and seems to spend more money than he should.

Richard Gere's best performance so far.
