Channeling the spirit of Charlie Chaplin - or perhaps Jacques Tati - this very funny tale of a series of unfortunate events in a Japanese mall displays both an impressive attention to detail and great comic timing. Even if you're not a fan of chiropractic, grown men dressed as fuzzy animals, automated conveyances, garish décor, and/or robotic cleaning devices, "Gokurosama" will show you how, when you put all of these together, it spells highly entertaining animated mayhem.
