In Theaters: Ghost Town 

You may know someone like Bertram Pincus, dentist and sourpuss. If you’re like me, you may even be him from time to time.

Bertram (Ricky Gervais) is scathing in his reflexive distaste for all things social, a man who prefers peace and quiet, and likes his job because his patients can’t talk while he’s working. Bertram is funny, in his way, but there’s a meanness to his humor that any friend of sarcasm can identify as a mask for pain. Unfortunately, that kind of pain can easily become self-perpetuating, something Ghost Town knows well.
