Ahead of its HBO premiere this coming Monday, "Le Cirque: A Table in Heaven" gets a once-over from the Times Arts section: "Sirio Maccioni is a delight to watch as he tries to cling to old ways (he commiserates with people like Joan Collins and Henry A. Kissinger), while his sons push for change. At a tasting at which his chef shows off some of the new menu possibilities, he is aggressively unimpressed. “Everything tastes the same,” he says. Then, after another sample, “This is not a soup, for the love of God."...When he’s not screaming at his family and employees, he’s a genial guide to his own life." [NYT]
