Michael Madsen goes undercover in Richard Lynch's drug operation
18 October 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched a full screen 81-minute version of "Inside Edge" (1992). This is a neo-noir on the list of critic Andrew Spicer. This will be a very good movie for Michael Madsen fans to see because he's present throughout, and also a good movie for Richard Lynch fans. There's a long love scene between Madsen and Rosie Vela that some may like; she also sings one torch song quite well.

Madsen is a cop who wants a big drug bust, and he aims to get it by worming his way into the confidence of a local drug kingpin played by Richard Lynch. He needs the help of femme fatale Vela to accomplish this. Madsen gets so far inside that he's ready to take over the whole operation from Lynch.

Madsen works in hundreds of movies. He's in heavy demand. It's hard to pin down the strength of Madsen as an actor. It has to do with his bearing. He's cool, soft-spoken, genuine, tuned into something beyond the material and the role. He's down-to-earth. He has a variety of expressions that make him seem almost shy or boyish. He doesn't generate a big Hollywood leading man vibration, as if he's there to make an impression and carry the movie. He's more understated. There's more humility in his presence.

Whatever it is, it works.
