NEW YORK (AP) – The Tribeca Film Festival ended with a bang: a special 25th anniversary screening of the Martin Scorsese gangster film “Goodfellas.”

Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco and Paul Sorvino walked the red carpet before the screening Saturday night.

Liotta recalled Scorsese saying he wanted to shoot the film “like a gangster.”

Many place the Oscar-nominated film at the top of the list of the greatest movies of all time, and certainly one that reinvented the gangster genre on the silver screen.

Scorsese couldn’t make the screening because he was out of the country, but he filmed a message introducing the film to the audience. After the screening, outgoing “Daily Show” host Jon Stewart moderated a panel discussion with the cast.
