I am trying to locate a movie that I saw only a few scenes to while recovering from some injuries. If I am remembering correctly, the protagonist exists in a society where everyone has a religion, save himself. I believe there were some characters (guards, police) who wore trench coats and had white face masks on (like Rorschach); and there was a receptionist who had just switched religions to something like "7th day adventists."

Can anyone recall this movie? I want to say it was a more recent (last 5 years) film, but I am not certain.

It is Franklyn. Here is a link to it. However, I wouldn't count on too much action. There are three important characters, each one with its own story, one of them sounding very similar to what you described here: in a world where every person must have a religion(even if it is a very weird one, more like a club), an atheist becomes a vigilante, trying to find and kill the head of a criminal... religion. Although this may seem like a film packed with action, there are quite few thrilling scenes. The intention of the filmmakers was to make you ask yourself some questions regarding religion, faith, existence and other philosophical topics. But, this goal doesn't seem to me as being achieved. In my opinion, they aimed at too many things at once.

Hope it will be helpful.

Whilst this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferable to include the essential parts of the answer here, and provide the link for reference. –  TylerShads May 10 '12 at 12:09
Please provided a synopsis of the movie –  DForck42 May 10 '12 at 13:58
@TylerShads Ok, I didn't want to make any spoilers and keep the answer objective, although this meant short. I have edited it now. Please let me know if it is right. Thank you. –  Dragos May 10 '12 at 17:51
@Dragos The main thing I look for in an identify-* answer is a reason why the person answering thinks it is the item in question; spoilers or not. This is much better :) –  TylerShads May 10 '12 at 18:06
