Internal Affairs
Filmfest 2006

Dennis Peck knows his way around the law. He can launder money, run a scam, fix a bad rap. He can even, for the right price, arrange a murder. "Trust me," he says, "I’m a cop." Raymond Avila is the investigator determined to bring Peck to justice in this supercharged police thriller. Peck isn't going down without a fight. The slick, cold-blooded manipulator intends to take Avila's career, his marriage, even his sanity with him. "And now (with) ‘Internal Affairs’, a dizzying police thriller, Mr. Figgis has established himself as a master of steamy sex appeal and brooding, nocturnal murk." Janet Maslin, New York Times, January, 1990
