Don Luis Bunuel's "L'Age d'Or" fits your description perfectly.

Well, it's probably not the best example of any of the criteria you mention, but "If...." by Lindsay Anderson has elements of each factor, and it's a brilliant film too.

Hey, pretender, if you're looking for weird, check out LIQUID SKY, 1982, dir. Slava Tsukerman...aliens addicted to the chemicals produced by human's brains as they achieve orgasm. Truly bizarre. And, of course, you haven't lived until you've seen Pink Flamingos and Female Trouble by the great John Waters. If you're into depraved, there's always Salo by Pasolini...stunning visuals but a sick story line.
