Here are this week's hottest home video releases. Find them on disc, or streaming services such as iTunes, Vudu, Amazon and Google Play.
THE BURNT ORANGE HERESY

Mick Jagger stars as a wealthy, controlling art dealer who manipulates a desperate art critic (Claes Bang) and his young lover (Elizabeth Debicki) into a web of intrigue and deceit. Artfully shot and stirringly told, the sophisticated art film is unpredictable and engrossing. Director Giuseppe Capotondi provides commentary, and there's also a background featurette.
DEEP BLUE SEA 3

A cheesy, oddball delight, the direct-to-video sequel pits researchers against genetically modified bull sharks in a mid-ocean lab. Tania Raymonde, Nathaniel Buzolic and Bren Foster star as glorified shark bait. Even with subpar effects and eye-rolling dialogue, the movie is an enjoyable lark for thrill-seekers.
THE KING OF STATEN ISLAND

Pete Davidson stars in a semiautobiographical tale of an aimless manchild who is trying to make his way from extended adolescence to adulthood. Davidson, who also had a hand in writing the screenplay, commands the film in a way that recalls early Adam Sandler, and director Judd Apatow lends his usual heartfelt and ribald touch. The movie is one of my favorites of the year so far.
