CINEPHILES may recognize the intense, blue-eyed actor playing a tormented research doctor in Spike Lee's new film, "She Hate Me," which opens Wednesday. The thespian in question is none other than David Bennent, who starred 25 years ago as the diminutive Oskar in Volker Schlondorff's Oscar-winning German film "The Tin Drum." Bennent was all of 12 when he played Oskar, a role that required him to participate in a sex scene. Controversy ensued.
