Reviewer Ophira Gamliel, who categorizes both films as "Holy Blasphemy," writes: "A deep and broad take on monotheism, as well as a touching perspective on the personal relationship between an aged Jewish father and his daughter. This Nina Paley movie (Seder-Masochism), like its predecessor Sita Sings the Blues, is based on a sound study of several religions and their symbols, interactions, conflicts, and their consequences to the life of men and women. Paley has clearly a big heart and a patient ear, and a wisdom that is precious to anyone interested in religions."

For Nina's Hundred Dollar Drawings you get a maximum of two words to describe what you want drawn, and there is always the threatening possibility that she might willfully misconstrue your meaning, but that's the chance you take. Still, at these prices you can't lose. The artwork you get is copyright-free, and you can use the drawing for anything - logo, gift, etc.

For an extra $25 the original drawing is mailed to you.

There is a $50 surcharge for including a bicycle, because, well, they are time consuming. It's still a great deal.

For an additional $100 you get a video of your drawing being created, like this one for Triking Adventurerer:
